Andrew researches the causes and consequences of population changes for the Northern Territory of Australia and northern regions more broadly. He undertakes both quantitative and qualitative research to understand impacts from policy, economic and structural changes for communities. In his PhD he investigated policy and theoretical implications from changing migration practices for Indigenous Territorians. Prior to academia, Andrew worked for a decade with the Australian Bureau of Statistics. He currently teaches the masters level subject Topics in Human Geography. Research interests include:
- Impacts from population changes in northern and sparsely settled areas
- Population projections
- Indigenous populations and changing demography
- Policy implications for population change at communities
