Andrew Weinstein is a Senior Software Engineer at Altvia Solutions, a software company in Broomfield, CO, providing a Salesforce-based customer relationship management solution for private equity firms. He previously worked as a web developer at White Goose Technology and as an analyst at Princeton Asset Management Group. He has experience with all levels of full-stack web application development, cloud-based infrastructure, and database management.
Andrew grew up outside of Boston, first in Sudbury, MA, and later in Hampton, NH. He received a Classical Diploma from Phillips Exeter Academy, where he was an early inductee to the Cum Laude Society and served as co-captain of the cross-country and crew teams. He received his bachelor’s degree in molecular biology with a certificate in neuroscience from Princeton University, where he completed the intensive, two-year Integrated Science curriculum and competed on the lightweight crew and cycling teams. His undergraduate senior thesis at Princeton, which investigated the relationship between auditory processing and behavior in fruit flies, received a departmental prize and contributed to a paper his lab later published in Nature.
Although Andrew transitioned to a career in software after college, he retains a deep interest in biology and neuroscience. He first learned about PANDAS when his close friend Alex, who was a classmate at both Exeter and Princeton, died from complications of the illness in 2018. He knew that she had hoped to educate people about the disease, and he joined the PANDAS Network board to help make that happen.
Andrew currently resides in Boulder, CO, where he spends as much time as he can outdoors and in the mountains. He is an accomplished amateur triathlete who also enjoys hiking and skiing, and when at home, he can often be found playing the guitar or doing a crossword puzzle.
