Andrew received his undergraduate degree in Biology from William & Mary in
2017, where he studied the visual ecology of blue crabs and diamondback
terrapin turtles. Following an internship with the NASA Langley Research
Center, Andrew received his Ph.D. in Fisheries Science from the Virginia
Institute of Marine Science in 2023. Andrew’s doctoral research was focused
on the diversity and impacts of climate change on Antarctic fishes. His
expertise spans several fields, including numerical modeling, taxonomy,
genetics, larval biology, and climatology. During his Ph.D., he also created
several outreach programs, completed a sub-concentration in Marine Policy
with a focus on aquaculture law, and taught an undergraduate course on
marine bioinspiration. Andrew joined the Coonamessett Farm Foundation in
June 2023 as a Research Biologist. He is also a project manger for the Marine
Surveys and Offshore Wind project. Andrew is excited to contribute to the
responsible development of offshore wind while preserving ecosystem
health and promoting positive stakeholder relationships. In his spare time,
