Andrew BernierAndrew Bernier, Ph.D., is the Senior Field Correspondent for Science and Innovation at KJZZ with more than a decade of academic and professional experience in scientific research, instruction and broadcasting.

Originally from Connecticut, Bernier studied sustainable development at Ithaca (N.Y.) College where he graduated with an Environmental Studies degree in 2007. He was active in the local green building and renewable energy community, researched native landscaping management and participated in the college radio station WICB as an on-air host and developed a local sustainability reporting show called “Your Impact.” He also served as a weekend music host for commercial radio stations WIII, WYXL and WQNY.

Bernier came to Phoenix in 2008 as part of the Teach for America program to teach middle school science in Glendale. During that time he earned his Master’s degree in Secondary Education focused on Science Instruction at Arizona State University. Bernier also holds standard teaching certificates in General Science, Biology, New and Emerging Technologies and Agriculture. To continue his radio experience, he volunteered as an on-air host and program director for the online community station radiophoenix.org.

Bernier then became the Sustainability Instructor at The Center for Research in Engineering, Science and Technology (CREST), a magnet school. He wrote, designed and launched the first comprehensive sustainability program for public high school students in the country.

As part of the program developed at CREST, Bernier used the systems-based curriculum for his dissertation in Sustainability Education from Prescott College. With his doctoral work and connections to STEM organizations, Bernier has developed a strong network with science and technology in the Valley.

Outside of science and radio, Bernier gets out to hike, camp and meander outdoors with his dog Moxie, dabble in landscape photography and perform in local improvisational comedy theater.
