A Berkeley, California native, Andrew Dienstfrey, part of the Mathematical Modeling Group in NIST's Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division, has been part of the Boulder Labs since 2000.

Prior to coming to NIST Dienstfrey worked for NASA Ames Research Center performing data analysis in support of solar radiation balance and global warming research. He also worked at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) where he developed computational models to investigate predictions of a new theory of turbulence developed by GISS investigators. From 1998 to 2000 he was a post-doctoral scientist at the Courant Institute investigating methods for remote sensing of dielectric properties of superconducting thin films.
