Andrew trained initially in Belfast before moving to England to train in paediatric neurology. He completed this training in Bristol in 2003 and was appointed to Alder Hey in September of that year.
He has strong interests in epilepsy, long-term non-neuromuscular neurological disability, traumatic brain injury, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and headache.
His research interests include the complex effects on carers and the family of a child with disability and the neurobiological processes of reward in various disease states. He is actively involved in research exploring the neurobiology of such conditions as ASD and obesity. He specialises in multi-questionnaire research designs to develop an understanding of the complex relationships between illness and child and carer experience.
He has recently published a laypersonís guide to brain functioning, called the Little Book of Big Stuff about the Brain. He is working towards his Judo black belt; enjoys tennis, mountain biking and rock climbing. He is a keen musician and dabbles in song and fiction writing. He also does the odd turn on television.
