Bio

Andrew received his B.S. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013.  He began graduate school shortly thereafter and received his M.S. in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University in Fall 2015.  His thesis work focused on comparing observed trends in cloud liquid water path as seen from passive microwave sensors to modeled cloud liquid water path trends in state of the art climate models. He joined RSS in June, 2016 as a research scientist.
