Dr. Andresen received his B.A. in physics from Boston University and his Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Cornell University. His research is in the electrostatic properties of biological molecules. In particular, he is interested in how life uses electrostatics to manipulate the packing of DNA in our bodies and how this special packing is utilized by everything from viruses to humans.
