Andrew is Head of the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences and Professor in Biomechanics/Neurophysiology. He completed his medical doctorate in Neuroscience from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, in 1993. He remained at the Karolinska Institute and University College of Physical Education and Sports until 2005 when he joined The University of Queensland.

Andrew's research interest is in the integration of neurophysiology and biomechanics (neuromechanics) to investigate the control of human movement. Particular research interests lie within the areas of: neural control of voluntary muscle actions; neuromuscular fatigue; muscle mechanics, gait and posture.
