Andrew holds an MA in Social Anthropology from York University in Toronto. Motivated to examine the materiality of power and the power of materials, his research explores how the harvest of roundwood trees for bioenergy projects is shaping the bioeconomy in North America. Working at the intersection of political ecology, science and technology studies, and postcolonial theory, Andrew is mapping linkages between the discursive practices that undergird the shifting use of biophysical forest resources and their socio-economic impacts. This undertaking is informed by three years’ experience managing consulting projects for feedstock-based bioeconomic development interests including private, public, and non-governmental organizations.
