Andrew is a Track I Master of Architecture student at UO’s Eugene campus and has been with the Energy Studies lab since December 2015. Andrew’s research focuses on heavy/engineered timber construction, and monitoring the health and performance of heavy timber products under various climatic conditions.  He is currently working on a collaborative research project between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, entitled Structural Health Monitoring and Post-Occupancy Performance of Mass Timber Buildings. In addition, Andrew supports research and design improvement recommendations for proposed building projects during their design development stages. Other research areas of interest include natural daylighting, natural ventilation, building thermal and energy performance, and stormwater management. Andrew has assisted with projects for the proposed Eugene City Hall and Springfield’s proposed CLT parking garage.
Prior to enrolling at the University of Oregon, Andrew worked as a civil engineer in the greater Washington, D.C. and Boston, MA areas, earning his professional license in 2012. While his undergraduate studies at Bucknell University focused on structural design, his professional experience concentrated on the design of site infrastructure and stormwater management. Andrew provided site civil design services on numerous projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions, including work on commercial, institutional, single- and multi-family residential, and mixed-use projects ranging from 1-acre pad-sites to 50-acre+ public and private campuses. He was also directly responsible for on-site coordination of construction and management of contractors for the Giant Fuel Station program in the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as large campus developments in Massachusetts.
