Andrew received his PhD in theoretical chemistry in 2024 from La Trobe University, Australia, under the supervision of Professor David J. D. Wilson. His doctoral research focused on characterizing the electronic structure of ligand-stabilized heterocycles, identifying novel bonding environments, studying aromaticity, and exploring the theoretical aspects of novel photophysical and magnetic properties. In 2024, he joined the Gilliard group as a postdoctoral associate, where he applies his expertise in theoretical chemistry to design novel boron-doped heterocycles.
