Student Bio: 

Andrew completed his B.S. in Meteorology (Atmospheric Science Option) from Penn State University in 2013 and his M.S. in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in May 2015. Andrew started at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in January of 2016 and is pursuing a Ph.D. in the area of cloud-aerosol interactions. His main research interests involve clouds and aerosols, specifically how they affect the earth's radiative budget, cloud microphysical processes, and precipitation. He is also interested in remote sensing (radar and satellite especially) applications of these research areas.  Andrew grew up near Pittsburgh, PA and loves his Steelers, Pirates and Penguins sports teams. In his free time, he enjoys golf, basketball, bowling, traveling, and Boom Beach.
