Andrew began his MSU career as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, working on the open-source supernova code TARDIS in a management and programming role. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Denver, specializing in observations and modeling of massive stars with polarization measurements.

Andrew has research interests across the lives and deaths of stars, from white dwarfs becoming Type Ia supernovae to massive stars producing neutron stars and black holes. He has expertise in machine learning, high-performance applications of Python and Fortran software, development workflows and management for large projects, and applying statistical inference to data with theoretical models. He has extensive proposal-writing experience.

At ICER, Andrew will support HPCC users with diverse needs across physics, astronomy, and beyond.
