Andrew earned his Ph.D. in Business with a specialization in Management from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May, 2021. His dissertation, Here's Your Sign: The Use of Signals in Impacting Social Categorizations and Resulting Emergent Leadership, looks at the impact of impression management in informal team settings on peer perceptions of trustworthiness and leadership emergence. His research interests revolve around perceptions of leadership, informal leadership, and research methods, and has been published in outlets like Journal of Management and Academy of Management Proceedings.

He has conducted research with Dr. Larry WilliamsDr. Troy Smith, Dr. Bradley Kirkman, and Dr. Ricky Griffin. His research interests lie in leader-follower teams and dyads, implicit perceptions, and measurement in research methods.
