Personal profile

Academic Background


Dr Andrew Burlinson joined Norwich Business School as Lecturer in Energy Economics in September 2019 as a member of the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) and Responsible Business Regulation Group. To date, Andrew has published in the international peer-reviewed journals, Research Policy and Energy Economics.

Dr Andrew Burlinson completing his PhD at Warwick Business School in the Economic Modelling and Forecasting group - funded by Western Power Distribution.

As a member of the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) - the UK’s leading inter-disciplinary centre focused on competition, regulation and consumer policy - he is embedded in the current policy and research areas of consumer decision-making regarding the adoption of energy efficient technologies, and inequality within energy markets. Most recently his research uncovered the causal and harmful effects of fuel poverty on health, wellbeing and healthy eating. 

Dr Andrew Burlinson has contributed to policy discussions and roundtables with leading experts and practitioners, including informing the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Fuel Poverty and Energy Efficiency. He has worked on several projects funded by Ofgem, EPSRC and CERRE


In October 2018, Dr Andrew Burlinson returned to the University of Warwick as a teaching fellow in the Department of Economics. As part of the Introduction of Environmental Economics module, Andrew's lectures are research-led (e.g. economic policy instruments, behavioural economics, technology adoption and inequality), inclusive and interactive, using in-class experiments and 'living labs' in order to engage students. Building on an extensive background in teaching statistics and econometrics seminars,  Dr Andrew Burlinson taught seminars in behavioural economics (BSc) and microeconomics (MSc) as well as supervised both BSc and MSc dissertations.  Dr Andrew Burlinson was an active member of the pastoral team and 1st Year tutor and was nominated and successful in the Departmental Recognition Scheme in 2019 for his contributions.

 Dr Andrew Burlinson joined Loughborough University's School of Business and Economics in August 2016 as a postdoctoral research associate. During this role,  Dr Andrew Burlinson conducted research for several EPSRC funded projects (C-MADEnS, EnTraNTS and FlexiNET) on topics such as: the implications of distributed energy technologies on welfare and legacy infrastructure; non-traditional business models and energy services; and, the estimation and evaluation of the impact marginal emissions. As part of the projects, Andrew organised several workshops and a conferences, bringing together organisations and SMEs with a shared interest in achieving an equitable transition to a low-carbon future.

Dr Andrew Burlinson completed his PhD in March 2017 at Warwick Business School - funded by Western Power Distribution as part of the FlexDGrid project. During his PhD, Andrew primarily used survey data and microeconometrics techniques to investigate the consumer decision-making processes underpinning the adoption of energy efficient technologies. More specifically, he used a quasi-experimental survey to explore behavioural failures, such as inattention and heuristics, informational asymmetries and issues related to low-income and vulnerable consumers. Andrew taught statistics and econometrics seminars in the Department of Economics and was awarded the WBS Outstanding Contribution to Teaching Award in 2016.

Andrew was awarded a distinction in Economics (MSc) at the University of Nottingham and a first class hons degree in Economics (BSc) at Newcastle University/University of Groningen.
