Andrew Myers
Computer Systems Engineer

I have a BS in Physics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a PhD in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley, where my thesis research focused on radiation-magnetohydrodynamic simulations of star formation and the turbulent interstellar medium. 

I am also interested in open-source software development, and am I member of the yt development team. You can see some of my open source contributions on my Bitbucket page.
