A skilled systems engineer and technology consultant, Andrew combines his passion for cyber security, experience in enterprise Information Technology, involvement in knowledge management and distinguished background in systems engineering to deliver a unique perspective on the people-process-technology interaction.
Andrew has served as a systems engineer for an organization within the Department of Defense, where his primary project focuses on modeling and simulations (M&S) relative to a complex System of Systems (SoS). Previously, Andrew served as an Information Technology Business System Analyst at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU APL), a not-for-profit research and development organization dedicated to solving a wide range of complex problems that present critical challenges to the nation’s security needs. In this role, he worked at the intersection of systems engineering and process-orientated technologies. He emphasized the human factor as he worked with a cross-functional team to deploy infrastructure technologies and application workflows, which resulted in higher user adoption rates. Earlier in his career, he worked as a technology consultant at The World Bank in Washington, D.C. and one of his many responsibilities was to maintain the system security posture of the computer training rooms located on main campus.
Andrew holds a MSE in Systems Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, where he graduated with Honors. His BS is in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Marquette University. He is an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University within the Whiting School of Engineering, and is also currently completing his D.Eng. dissertation in engineering management at The George Washington University.
