Robbie Andrew is a senior researcher at CICERO. His primary interest is in uncovering the connections between our behaviour as consumers and the remote and often unseen consequences of these behaviours.
To explore this issue he has used a range of analytical tools, including multi-regional input–output analysis, life-cycle assessment, and general equilibrium models. While his work to date has been largely quantitative, he has a particular interest in the sociological aspects of consumer behaviour, the relationships between economic agents, and the politics of the environment. Prior to working at CICERO, Robbie worked at the environmental research institute Landcare Research in New Zealand for 14 years.
