Andy joined the staff in 2011 as an SE1 and has been at the lab for three years. Two of those years Andy worked as an intern. Andy is an Electrical Systems Power Engineer. My main area of work has been in the development of GridLAB-D, which is a power-flow simulation environment developed here at the lab.
