Andrew is a Senior Lecturer in the Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology at the University of Manchester. He is also a Software Sustainability Institute Fellow, associate of the eScience lab, Data Carpentry instructor, local lead for the UK Reproducibility Network, and Open Life Science mentor.

In 2018, he co-founded the Open Research Working Group at the University of Manchester with SSI Research Director and Fellow Dr. Caroline Jay. This group forms part of the North West Open Research Hub and he works closely with other local Open Research leads on co-ordinating Open Research events and training courses across the North West. He sits on the University of Manchester’s Open Research Strategy Group and has worked closely with other colleagues at the University of Manchester on developing an Open Research policy and a set of recommendations for good Open Research practices. He teaches extensively on the Psychology M.Res. and the School of Biological Sciences M.Sci. degree programmes, where he focuses on teaching reproducibility using #rstats and Open Research practices to students. You can find out more about the activities around Open and Reproducible Research practices at the upcoming “Beware: Results May Vary - Workshop on Openness as a Means of Enhancing Research Quality” at the University of Manchester in February 2020.
