Andrew is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Topology and Dynamics group. 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. He moved to the Open University in 2024.
