Andy joined the UCL Educational Psychology team in 2013. He holds a PhD (University of Edinburgh) in how reasoning processes vary along the broader autism spectrum; an MSc (also from Edinburgh) in Neuroinformatics; and a BEng in Computer Science (Queen's University Belfast). His current research aims to improve evidence-based decision making, e.g., modelling the effectiveness of school and community-CAMHS based mental health interventions and predictors of treatment resource needs.
Before moving to the Ed Psych Group he was a Research Fellow at the UCL/Anna Freud Centre CAMHS Evidence Based Practice Unit, where he worked on the national evaluation of the Children and Young People's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (CYP IAPT) programme, and Research Lead at the CAMHS Outcomes Research Consortium, a grassroots learning collaboration of mental health professionals from services across the UK. Before that he was a Postdoc at the University of Salzburg in Austria where he did research on how people reason under uncertainty.
