Andrew Harrison

Andrew Harrison of Wayzata, Minnesota, who is currently conducting research at the MSU Bioeconomy Institute in Holland, Mich., with Director of Research and Development Thomas Guarr, has received a research award from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.

Harrison, a chemistry and engineering dual major at nearby Hope College, will spend the coming academic year in Denmark, where he and a mentor at the Technical University of Denmark will be conducting research on the public acceptance of wind energy, specifically concerning the issue of turbine noise. He will also be taking introductory sustainability, organization and quantitative decision-making master’s-level classes in the university’s Engineering Management Department.

Harrison is also conducting research with Hope faculty member Michael Seymour, professor of chemistry, at the Michigan State Bioeconomy Institute.
