Personal profile

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. He is Director for Enterprise & Impact in the Faculty of Health Sciences, Fellowships Director for the EPSRC LEAP Digital Health Hub, and a Turing Fellow. Previously, he was Research Director for Bristol Veterinary School, founding Director of the John Oldacre Centre and an Associate Director of the HDR-UK South-West Better Care Partnership. He held an EPSRC Overseas Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Life Sciences Interface between the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and University College Dublin, an MRC New Investigator Research Grant at the Centre for Advanced Discovery and Experimental Therapeutics, The University of Manchester, and was a Reader in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at the University of Liverpool.
