Research Associate, CGS

Andy is a research associate at CGS contributing to modeling and analysis, with a focus on energy. Currently he is most involved with a project on the co-benefits of air pollution and climate mitigation in China. This work combines his hope to promote social change with his interest in systems dynamics. Andy brings experience as a researcher at the Earth Systems Science Interdisciplinary Center at UMD. He has an M.S. in Biological and Ecological Engineering from Oregon State and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Rice. He has been active in various organizations advocating for climate justice, including as a youth outreach coordinator for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network. Before the pandemic he was in the Peace Corps in Panama as a sustainable agriculture volunteer. He is grateful to be able to bike to work and enjoys being outside generally, as well as spending time with new and old friends.

Successfully addressing the climate crisis while achieving sustainable development goals will require carefully constructed strategies to enact rapid economic transitions to a cleaner economy—tailored to national circumstances and priorities. The Center for Global Sustainability has deep expertise in country-specific analytical and policy approaches across key sectors and in support of a 1.5°C-pathway.
