Andrew Moon is a Ph.D. candidate at The New School for Social Research in New York City. His dissertation explores links between the practice of sound, earth science, and financial services drawing on field work primarily in Southeast Asian locations. Andrew’s research has received support from the Social Science Research Council’s IDRF program and the Wenner-Gren Foundation. At The New School, he works with Hugh Raffles and Janet Roitman along with Stefan Helmreich at MIT.

Prior to graduate school, Andrew interned in Accenture’s technology consulting division and later worked as an economic researcher on aid projects for the Asian Development Bank and ASEAN in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. More recently, he was employed as a research associate with Terreform in NY. Andrew’s practice extends to a web-based mix series that curates sound art and after hours content.

Andrew grew up on Wathaurong country in regional Australia, an area marked by a recent history of resource extraction, labor migration, and settler colonial aphasia, and nearby to a lake whose Indigenous name translates in English to ‘Go Away’. Andrew goes by he/him.
