WyCEHG's Newest Team Member: Andy Parsekian
WyCEHG welcomes its newest member to the team, Dr. Andrew(Andy) Parsekian! Andy is a new Assistant Professor in the Department ofGeology and Geophysics, and will be adding to WyCEHG’s research power in the area of Hydrogeophysics.
Originally from New Jersey, Andy received his PhD from Rutgers University. He comes to the University of Wyoming via California where held a position as a postdoc at Stanford University.
Andy’s research in the past has focused on environmental geophysics and hydrogeophysics, and he is looking forward to working with other WyCEHG scientists.
“I’m excited to be able to work with experts in different fields,” says Andy.
Andy is also looking forward to the opportunity to use WyCEHG instruments to conduct research in collaboration with other WyCEHG team members.
“We have a huge instrument facility here,” says Andy. “I’ll be available to help people who might want to use a certain measurement method to think conceptually about how to integrate that into their research projects.”
Most importantly, Andy is excited to be in Laramie and is taking advantage of all that it has to offer.
“Snow sports are definitely the key sort of thing I like to do. Here in Laramie, we’re in the mountains, we’re almost on top of them,” says Andy. “I’ve always loved the mountains, so one of the things I’m most excited about is to be right here, only minutes away from a place to go skiing, only minutes away from a place to go hiking.”
Welcome to the team, Andy!
