BioI was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but spent most of my childhood in The Netherlands, where we moved when I was four years old. I lived there with my parents and brother, until I finished secondary school. The year after I graduated, I went to Argentina, on a cultural exchange program. When I got back to The Netherlands, I moved to Utrecht, where I studied Computer Science at the University. Two friends and I lobbied for the founding of the Dutch Aibo Team, with which we competed in the Robocup 4-legged League in Lisbon. The team continued and participated in Osaka, but I had the opportunity to do the research for my Master's thesis at the University of Melbourne, in Australia. I spent a year in Australia and upon my return completed my MSc. I worked at a software company for 2 years before accepting a scholarship in the Consolider program, to do my PhD at the IIIA, in Barcelona.
Since moving to Barcelona I am updating my travel blog again. You can read that at andrew.whereareyou.net.
