Personal profile

Research interests

Andrew’s research group focuses on the facilitation and acceleration of health sciences research through novel artificial intelligence and statistical data science methodology, as well as data collection and management platforms. His team works in highly multidisciplinary environments to both support and lead investigations across three strands of research: Profiling the protein and metabolite content of biological fluids and tissues using mass spectrometry proteomics and metabolomics for understanding disease mechanism, and to discover biomarkers for clinical diagnostics; Constructing secure research platforms from population-level agricultural, environmental and health data to inform policy on One Health challenges such as global food security and the transmission of anti-microbial resistance; Intensive longitudinal health, activity and behavioural monitoring at the level of individual animals and groups of animals.

Andrew has a joint position in Bristol Veterinary School and the Department of Population Health Sciences, Bristol Medicial School. He coordinates the John Oldacre Centre at Bristol Veterinary School, where he is also Population Health Theme Lead (and formerly Research Director). He is Co-Director for Enterprise & Innovation in the Faculty of Health Sciences, is an Associate Director of the HDR-UK South-West Better Care Partnership, and a Turing Fellow. Previously, he held an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, an MRC New Investigator Research Grant at CADET, The University of Manchester, and was a Reader in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at the University of Liverpool.
