Hey, I'm Andrew

I graduated from the University of Waterloo's Systems Design Engineering undergraduate program in spring 2020 (bad timing, I know). I'm also a grad from the University of Toronto, where I majored in Economics. The fact that I ended up finishing both probably tells you more about me than I'd like to admit.

In my work, I am usually the data expert, which suits me well with my love for statistics and my deep commitment to uncovering the truth and understanding the world we all live in. However, my passion lies in modelling more generally; if I'm being honest, I have never been more at peace doing work than when I was building and calibrating traffic simulation models in Vissim. I'm hoping someday I will get the chance to do simulation modelling for work again, either working in industry or as a part of academic research.

In my off time, I like to play construction and management simulation games (Oxygen Not Included, Dwarf Fortress, and SimCity are some of my all-time favourites) and juggle my ever-expanding list of hobbies. In particular, I'm an enthusiastic hand-tool woodworker, and my favourite pieces to make are—of course—better containers to store my tools.
