Andrew studies the archaeology of digital spaces and how humans inhabit them and founded the subdiscipline of video game archaeology (aka archaeogaming). In 2014 he helped excavate the Atari Burial Ground in Alamogordo, NM. In 2018 he documented the mass migration of hundreds of players in the game No Man's Sky who were displaced by a catastrophic climate change event.
