Andrew Fink joins Azavea as a Software Developer on the Justice and Election Services Team. Before joining Azavea, Andrew worked at Weather Underground as a Meteorological Software Developer, researching new ways to aggregate and display the data from the company’s extensive Personal Weather Station (PWS) network. He was also a member of the development team for the WunderMap and architected a framework for generating text forecasts from the PWS network in over 30 languages. As an undergraduate at Penn State, Andrew worked on various projects in both the Meteorology and Computer Science departments, including single station lightning detection research, atmospheric dispersion modeling, and the Campus Weather Service website.
In his free time, Andrew can be found dodging clouds in any of a number of single engine airplanes, and is currently working through an aerobatic training program after acquiring his tailwheel endorsement in June 2011. Andrew’s other sunny day activities include volleyball, skiing and hiking. On wetter days, he can be found hanging out at home with a book and a microbrew, or running in the rain.
