Adrian Hunt has a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of Manchester, an M.S. in Geology from New Mexico Tech and a Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences from the University of New Mexico. He has worked for almost 30 years at various institutions of higher education and museums.

Adrian first conducted fieldwork in the Late Cretaceous of the San Juan Basin in 1980. Subsequently, he has published on the stratigraphy, sedimentology, vertebrate paleontology, taphonomy and ichnology of the Fruitland and Kirtland formations. With Spencer Lucas, he has named five of the stratigraphic subdivisions of these units and two of their hadrosaurian dinosaurs (Anasazisaurus and Naashoibitosaurus). Hunt has also published widely on the vertebrate paleontology, ichnology and stratigraphy of the late Paleozoic through late Mesozoic.
