Andrew specialises in research on alcohol and other drug (AOD) use and its relationship with drug policy, with a focus on methamphetamines and the experiences of young people. He is currently examining the challenges and risks to the community posed by the (ab)use of alcohol and illicit drugs in rural and regional areas of Australia. His broader research interests and expertise include academic integrity, specifically greater understanding and prevention of assignment outsourcing/contract cheating within higher education, as well as the criminological challenges for victims in the criminal justice system. Andrew has published in leading international journals in each of these areas and is undertaking a series of empirical projects.
