He is member of the Transforming Creativity research group and is co-director of the recently founded WSAiLab - an interactions, prototyping and research space. He is also a web designer, photographer and maker of things.

Andy joined WSA/UoS in 2014. Previously he was a Principal Lecturer in Creative Technologies at University of West London, where at various times he managed people, resources, courses and university-wide projects.

In 2013, in recognition of his sustained impact on learning and teaching, Andy was awarded a Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. He has held numerous external examiner positions with other UK universities and spent a period leading the Interaction and Web group on the British Computer Society HE Qualifications Panel.

Andy's work focuses on the roles of design thinking and design research in the visual and information design for digital devices. He writes code and has a career-long interest in enhancing learning experiences through digital technologies. This has led to academic papers on topics ranging from the use of social software to support learning through to creativity and the use of learning journals in the reflective process.
