Andrew is a Stanford Graduate Fellow and member of the Urban Informatics Lab pursuing a PhD in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. In his research, he is interested modeling and understanding human-building interaction. In particular, his research focuses on using plug load data in commercial buildings to infer information about activities of building occupants and the network of relationships among them. These insights, he believes, will help building managers and designers improve building operation for energy efficiency, productivity, and comfort. He holds an MS in civil engineering from Stanford University and a BS in civil engineering from Northwestern University, where he also minored in economics and architecture. Outside the lab, Andrew runs the Hard Earth Speaker Series at Stanford’s Roble Hall—a series in which graduate students from across the university discuss vexing environmental dilemmas. Andrew’s favorite things outside the office and classroom are concerts, cooking, golf, the outdoors, and his beloved Chicago Cubs.
