Andrew is a Research Fellow in the Topology and Dynamics group, working with Dr Tony Samuel. His main research interests lie in aperiodic order, ergodic theory and fractal geometry. He is also interested in connections between these fields and other areas of mathematics and science, such as structural properties of quasicrystals and complexity of natural phenomena. Andrew's research is supported by EPSRC grant EP/Y023358/1.
