Andrew received his Ph.D. in Climate Physics and Chemistry from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011. His research focuses on understanding a critical, but individually tiny, component of life on Earth: plankton. Furthermore, his research focuses on how climate change impacts marine life and the ocean.
