Andrew is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the Livneh Lab Group.  His current research interests and projects range from modeling flood conditions in the Upper Missouri River Basin, analyzing snow-based streamflow prediction methods and coupling satellite observations with modeled products to estimate evaporation from the soil.  Additionally, Andrew is interested in advancing the understanding of the relationship between the land-surface and climate system, modeling of agricultural water-use and associate impacts, and investigating how land-surface changes impact the water cycle and exploring the societal impact these changes can have.  In addition to his research, Andrew has also been a lecturer in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Department teaching an entry-level climate course.  Previously, Andrew has been affiliated with North Carolina State University (B.S. in Meteorology), George Mason University (Ph.D. in Climate Dynamics) and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (Natural Environments Branch).  He enjoys spending time outdoors, cooking, reading and is an avid fan of the NC State Wolfpack, Carolina Panthers and Washington Nationals.
