Andrew completed his Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rowan University in the USA. He then continued his education within the Erasmus Mundus EMIN program on a full academic scholarship to complete a Master of Science at TU Delft in Engineering and Policy Analysis (Delft, The Netherlands) and an Official Master in Energy Economics and Regulation of the Power Industry from Pontificia Universidad Comillas (Madrid, Spain). Most recently he is PhD Candidate in Energy Economics at Paris SUD XI as of February 2016.

Currently he is a Visiting Researcher at UC Berkeley as well as an Affiliate Researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Labs visiting from his home institution VEDECOM (Versailles, France), where he has been a Doctoral Researcher since February 2016.

His research is focused on econometric analyses pertaining to future business plans for electric vehicle participation in energy markets otherwise known as Vehicle to Grid/Building/Home (V2X) services. Current work includes quantification of battery costs due to degradation and grid service provision which will allow for more realistic economic analyses of V2X and economic analyses of Electric and Plug-in-Hybrid (EV & PHEV) availability as aggregated flexible resources for the electricity grid.
