Full Profile

Andy completed his PhD, examining the possibilities for communication support in electronically mediated decision making groups, in the Department of Psychology at the University of Plymouth. He had previously studied there for his first degree in the department while it was both Plymouth Polytechnic and Polytechnic South West (PSW). 

Between the two he had a short contract as a research assistant and then began to lecture within the department. Initially his teaching was on fractional appointments but he eventually moved to a full-time position and stayed. Having taught research methods and statistics within the department over a period of 10 years, it was time for a change. He began work at the University of Central Lancashire in July 2002.
