Andrew, originally from Charleston, SC, received his BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2013. He returned to SC to begin his PhD studies in heterogeneous catalysis under the co-advisement of Drs. John R. Regalbuto and John R. Monnier. His research focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of bimetallic catalysts especially for high temperature applications. Andrew also works in partnership with Dr. Todd J. Toops at ORNL. This collaboration seeks to improve diesel exhaust oxidation catalysts by focusing on precise noble metal addition.
