Andrew recently joined the Icefin team after completing his PhD in the Jaffe Lab at Scripps where his work focused on the development of novel microscopic imaging systems to observe marine organisms in their natural ocean environments. Originally from Santa Cruz, California, Andrew received his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. His undergraduate research included work studying groundwater hydrology in Benin, Africa; and physical oceanographic work using ocean gliders to study water circulation in the Arctic Ocean. Andrew has earned an M.S. in oceanography and is currently working towards a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering which he expects to finish in spring 2017.
