Andrew says "I got my first taste of art history and of the artistic heritage of the medieval Mediterranean at the University of Puget Sound. Studying art history at Puget Sound provided me with the tools required to succeed in my current graduate program and in my research: a critical eye and an attention to detail, skills in written and oral communication, and an ability to evaluate and combine different kinds of evidence."

He was awarded a three-year (2016-2019) David E. Finley Fellowship of the Center for Advanced Studies in the Visual Arts intended for research and travel in Europe related to his dissertation on Byzantine manuscripts of herbal medicine. The fellowship also provides a year-long residency at the Center to complete the dissertation and carry out curatorial work. He was also awarded a two-year fellowship (2014-2016) from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to pursue his dissertation research at the Kunsthistorisches Institute in Florence.

Andrew published a study entitled, “Audiences on the Walls of St Clement,” in a volume edited by Beate Fricke and Urte Krass, “The Public in the Picture: Involving the Beholder in Antique, Islamic, Byzantine and Western Medieval and Renaissance Art,” in 2015.

Andrew’s translation of Beate Fricke’s book "Fallen Idols, Risen Saints from German to English" was published in 2015.
