In August 2010, Andrew joined BRI as the GIS program director and now oversees all aspects of data management within BRI as the data management director.
Andrew earned his master's degree in wildlife ecology from the University of Maine, Orono on Black Tern nesting ecology. He then conducted work on forest songbirds in New York and began his work at the Patuxent Widlilfe Resesarch Center, U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) studying historical voucher specimens for National Parks in the Northeast. His work continued with USGS studying mammal distributions at national parks in the Northeast and monitoring groundwater wells at Acadia National Park.
Most recently he worked with partners at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to bring together historical and current seabird data for the U.S. Atlantic waters as part of a long term effort to understand seabird distribution and population change. His work has resulted in a better understanding of the patterns of seabird distribution through time and space within the western North Atlantic.
