Nicole Adams completed her Bachelor of Arts (BA, Hons) with a specialization in psychology at Laurentian University.

She continued her academic journey at York University where she pursued a Master of Science (MSc) in kinesiology and health sciences. During her masters, she dove into the health behaviours research stream where she explored oxytocin and genetic links with overeating behaviours and examined other relevant factors such as reward and punishment sensitivity.

Here she successfully taught undergraduate students the fundamentals of statistics for both Research Methods in Kinesiology and Analysis of Data in Kinesiology.
