Andrew completed physical therapy school at the University of Washington, obtaining the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2008. Andrew has practiced clinically with a variety of patient populations, including geriatrics, orthopedics, musculoskeletal, neurological, and spinal cord injury, and holds clinical hours at the Colorado RSVP Clinic. He has been involved with spinal cord injury research since 2010, with completion of his PhD in Neuroscience from Northwestern University in 2016. In regards to research, Andrew utilizes MRI techniques to investigate the extent of spinal cord injury and its impact on function, with the ultimate goal of improving the assessment and thus clinical management of patients with SCI. His notable research awards include the 2019 - 2021 NIH/National Institute of Child Health and Human Development NCMRR Early Career Investigator R03 award, 2015 & 2017 NIH Loan Repayment Program for Clinical Research, the 2014 & 2016 NIH T32 Training Grant, and multiple awards from the Foundation for Physical Therapy and the APTA. Teaching Philosophy: My primary philosophy as a teacher of physical therapy students is to facilitate learning by connecting course material back to clinical relevance. In doing so, my approach bolsters student's long-term retention, clinical reasoning, and empathy for patients.
