Andrew's main research interests include desert geomorphology, dust storms, weathering, climatic change in the tropics, and the impacts of humans on the environment. He is also undertaking work on the landforms of Dorset and the Cotswolds.
Travel has always played a large part of Andrew's life and he has visited over 50 countries (many of which have changed names several times since he first visited!). He has been happily married to his wife Heather since 1987 and has grand plans of continuing travelling around the world with her when (if) she retires.
He now mainly resides in the Isle of Portland, which is a geomorphologists paradise, and loves walking along the world famous Jurassic Coast. He also loves gardening and currently believes that he has some of the tallest Echiums in the UK!
Both of his daughters have also followed in the family tradition of geography and he looks forward to teaching his new grandson all about the geomorphology and landforms of the world as he grows up.
