Andrew’s research currently spans two main areas.  The first concerns the constitutive effects of various different security discourses and their impact upon wider collective understandings and security practices.  This work has included investigating constructions of terrorism and cyber‑security within political, media and expert discourses. 

Andrew’s research has also focused on the enactment of the Prevent Duty within UK Higher Education.  His work in this area is currently being funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust under the project title "Desecuritising Higher Education".

Andrew’s teaching explores critical questions about the study of security and he currently teaches a number of modules within the School of Social Sciences covering topics such as contemporary conflict, terrorism and international relations theory.
