At the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Andy Rivkin's research centers around near-infrared spectroscopy and spectrophotometry of asteroids, remotely dowsing the main belt.

He is also the Treasurer of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society.

In his copious spare time, he listens to and plays music, and has a blog with informal recordings and a site for downloading fuller recordings as well as other, more random things.
