Who am I?

Hey there, I’m Adam Drees. I work as an Embedded Software Engineer at Emerson where I develop software and firmware used with industrial controllers. I am currently located in Charlottesville, VA.

Previously, I worked as a Simulation Project Engineer with Emerson in Saint Louis, MO. I worked in the field of process simulation and control. My focus was building low-cost process simulations used for agricultural processing plants, pulp and paper, water/wastewater treatment and power generation. I also worked as an instructor who taught control engineers how to develop and maintain simulations.

In 2013, I earned a B.S in Mechanical Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. From 2014 to 2018, I attended Computer Science courses at University of Missouri-Saint Louis. Currently, I am enrolled with Georgia Institute of Technology to earn a M.S. in Computer Science.

My hobbies include rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and skiing.
