Research interests

Andrew’s research group focuses on the acceleration of health sciences research and new clinical diagnostics 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 lead and support 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 and developing predictive models from population-level health and environmental data to develop interventions for One Health challenges such as anti-microbial resistance; Intensive longitudinal health, activity and behavioural monitoring at the level of individual animals and groups of animals for welfare and environmental sustainability.

Andrew has a joint position in Bristol Veterinary School and the Department of Population Health Sciences, Bristol Medicial School. He is AI lead for the John Oldacre Centre at Bristol Veterinary School, where he is also Population Health Theme Lead and Impact Director.
