Andrew was a Research Fellow focusing on the creative and digital economy. His work looked at new techniques in data science - both as a method for studying the creative and digital economy, and as a topic of study itself.
Previously, he has worked as a consultant at NERA Economic Consulting, ACIL Allen Consulting and Accenture, working across diverse issues in social policy and economic regulation, ranging from disability and education to power poles and aviation. His strongest interests are in technology, innovation and growth.
He is in the final stages of his doctorate in econometrics at the University of Oxford. In addition, he holds an MPhil in Economics from Oxford, and bachelor's degrees in Economics and Computer Science from the University of Queensland.
Andrew was a longtime Twitter sceptic, but now tweets with the fervour of a convert, as @EconAndrew.
