Andrew Tredennick joined WEST in 2019 as a Biometrician. Andrew received his B.S. in Biology from Texas Tech University in 2006, including a semester in Kenya at the School for Field Studies’ Center for Wildlife Management Studies. Andrew received his Ph.D. in Ecology from Colorado State University in 2014 as a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow. He then pursued postdoctoral research at Utah State University as a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Biology and Mathematics (2014-2017), and then continued postdoctoral research at Utah State University (2017-2018) and The University of Georgia (2018-2019).
Andrew’s research has focused on how plant populations and communities respond to global environmental change (from tree harvest to climate change), using contemporary quantitative approaches to gain inference from heterogeneous, multi-scale data. He has presented his research at national and international conferences and consistently publishes in peer reviewed journals. Andrew has expertise in modeling dynamic processes in space and time using hierarchical Bayesian methods, leading to a general interest in probabilistic forecasting. At WEST, Andrew is primarily involved in statistical analysis and simulation for Habitat Conservation
