TD Andrews, PhD

Founder & Chief Scientist

Growing up on a farm in the New York City suburbs, the firsthand view of economic dominance over ecosystems inspired me to defend the underdog. I studied natural resources at Cornell University and helped preserve wetlands at Langan Engineering. With a growing understanding of climate change, I came to appreciate our socioeconomic system as the tail wagging the [under]dog. To reconcile the value of natural systems with economics I pursued big data research, helped improve a major global climate model (CESM) and subsequently realized any real-world impact was largely missing. By luck, I found a new paradigm of decision-relevant systems thinking and subsequently developed a framework to analyze underlying patterns of change in complex systems, such as bio-derived material innovation, revenue forecasting and anti-racism ripple effects.
