Andrew Myers is an Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University and a registered professional engineer in the state of California. Prior to joining Northeastern, Andrew worked for two years at AIR Worldwide in San Francisco, where he consulted on site-specific natural catastrophe risk assessments.
He received his M.S. (2006) and Ph.D. (2009) at Stanford University and his B.S. (2004) from Johns Hopkins University; all three degrees are in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a focus on Structural Engineering. His interests include multi-scale experimental testing of structures, computational mechanics-based simulation, probabilistic modeling of structural and natural systems, home renovations and CrossFit.

Some say a city simply can’t be environmentally sustainable. A growing group of Northeastern researchers is challenging that idea, saying it's all in how you frame the problem.
The United States has set a goal of generating 54 gigawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030 — enough to power tens of millions of American homes. But in order to reach...
