Andrew has worked in what we now call the low-carbon sector since 1992.

Having trained as a mathematician, Andrew began his career as an industrial photovoltaic systems designer. He then studied Transport Planning, and joined one of the top modelling agencies, providing transport modelling to local, regional, national and European government bodies.

He joined Transport for London the day it was created, where he worked on policy, strategy, business planning, performance monitoring and modelling of transport and local and global pollutants. In 2005 he founded the London Analytics boutique consultancy, providing policy-development and modelling internationally, in transport, energy, and the low-carbon economy. In 2010 he joined UCL as a Senior Research Associate in the multi-disciplinary Energy Institute.

He is now a Principal Research Associate, and is the Deputy Director and Academic Head of the RCUK Centre for Energy Epidemiology.
