After completing his PhD at the University of Chichester, Andrew spent a year lecturing at the University of Edinburgh before joining the Carnegie Faculty at the end of 2009. As well as teaching sport and exercise psychology at undergraduate and postgraduate level, he is engaged in various activities within the Faculty's Research Institute for Sport, Physical Activity and Leisure. He also acts as a reviewer and Editorial Board member for a number of scientific journals.

Andrew is an elected member of the Training Committee for the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Division of Sport & Exercise Psychology (DSEP). He is also an approved supervisor for the BPS (Stage 2) Qualification in Sport & Exercise Psychology.

Current Teaching

Andrew contributes to the design, delivery and assessment of various modules across the undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. In addition to providing supervision to a range of dissertation and PhD students, Andrew currently leads the following modules:

  • Practicum (Level 7);
  • Research and Professional Practice (Level 7).

Research Interests

Based on the findings of recently completed projects conducted in sport and education settings, Andrew is currently investigating the influence that specific sources of information (e.g., body language, verbal communication, written reports) have on expectations and behaviours within interpersonal relationships (e.g. coach-athlete, coach-parent; student-teacher, client-practitioner). He is also examining the impact of Active Video Games (e.g. Nintendo Wii; XBox Kinect) within three primary contexts: education, physical activity, and sports injury rehabilitation. The findings from Andrew's research have helped to inform the practice of a range of professionals including sports coaches and lecturing staff.
