Andrew joined Norwich Business School in September 2019 as a member of the Responsible Business Regulation Group. To date, Andrew has published in the international journals, Research Policy and Energy Economics.

In October 2018, Andrew 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, Andrew taught seminars in behavioural economics (BSc) and microeconomics (MSc) as well as supervised both BSc and MSc dissertations. Andrew 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.

Andrew joined Loughborough University's School of Business and Economics in August 2016 as a postdoctoral research associate. During this role, Andrew 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.

Andrew completed his PhD inMarch 2017 at Warwick Business School and was 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.
