Andrew is a cosmologist, currently based at Emmanuel College and the Kavli Institute for Cosmology in Cambridge. He received his PhD from Cambridge University in 2009. His research interests span everything from galaxy formation to the microwave background (the radiation left over from the big bang).
Andrew has been involved in communicating science from the beginning of his PhD. He recently won the 'Masterclass Award' in the FameLab 2009 national final. When not embroiled in science, he can occasionally be found working on sound or music for London fringe theatre productions (most recently, Dream of the Dog at the Finborough Theatre).
