Andrea Meier, Editor-in-Chief at Explorations

Andrea Meier ’21

Andrea Meier ’21 is the Editor-in-Chief of Explorations: The Texas A&M Undergraduate Journal. Andrea is a senior civil engineering major specializing in water resources from Allen, Texas, and has been a part of Explorations since her freshman year. Andrea’s favorite part of Explorations is getting to work with students from diverse disciplines and helping them share their work with the Texas A&M community. In her time at Explorations, Andrea has learned from many talented student editors and authors, and been able to hone her skills as an editor, communicator, and leader. In addition to Explorations, Andrea has been involved in several organizations at Texas A&M, including MSC Business Associates, the MSC Wiley Lecture Series, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and Habitat for Humanity. Andrea also participated in the Aggie Research Program, working on research related to home flooding predictors in the Houston area, and the interdisciplinary ENDEAVR (Envisioning the Neo-Traditional Development by Embracing the Autonomous Vehicles Realm) program focused on developing ‘smart’ infrastructure in small to midsize Texas cities. Andrea is a President’s Endowed Scholar and attended the Champe Fitzhugh International Honors Leadership Seminar in 2017, where she learned about Explorations from Dr. Sarah Misemer, a faculty advisor for both the seminar and Explorations. After graduation, Andrea will begin working at an infrastructure firm, where she will work on water and wastewater master planning projects for cities and towns. She is excited to be able to bridge her interests in water resources, urban planning, and writing in her career. In her free time, Andrea likes spending time with friends, being outside, and reading. She has also recently become interested in rock climbing and learning how to play the mandolin!
