Welsh Crucible 2015
Andrew joined the School of Planning & Geography at Cardiff University in June 2012 under the Serious Brain Power initiative after one year as an ARC Research Fellow at the Global Change Institute and School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. Before his Antipodean adventure he was a post-doctoral research assistant at the Centre for Adaptive Science and Logistics Institute, University of Hull. He received his PhD in July 2010 from the University of Hull. He is currently associate editor for the journal Regional Studies, Regional Science and sits on the adaptation sub-group of the Climate Change Commission for Wales, where he is assisting Welsh Government in the formulation of their sectoral adaptation plans. Andrew loves the challenge of working with peers from different disciplines; he is currently working with academics from the humanities, social and physical sciences on a number of projects. More generally, Andrew’s research interests span geography, environmental science and cognate disciplines and his main focal interests examine how power is configured and negotiated across territorial space and scale through climate change and environmental governance interventions and processes. He is a firm believer that academics should be heard by all parts of society, not just students in lectures.
2016 Update: Andrew continues his role as Lecturer and Research Fellow in the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University.
