Dr. Adams graduated from Princeton University in 2006 and received her MD from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in 2011. She remained at the University of Rochester for her internship in medicine before going to the University of Pennsylvania, where she completed a residency in neurology in 2015. She returned to the University of Rochester for a movement disorders fellowship from 2015-2016. She joined the faculty in 2016 and specializes in the care of patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. Her research focuses on the use of technology, such as wearable sensors, smartphone applications, and telemedicine, in individuals with neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson disease and Huntington disease.
