Andrew’s research interests revolve around developing data-driven urban development recommendations to enhance future sustainability and optimise resource investment. This covers the broad themes of: city science, spatial data analysis, dynamic population modelling and earth observation. His doctoral research used Earth observation to quantify urban growth and demonstrated its application to sustainable city development. With a background in remote sensing Andrew has also been involved with field validation of Sentinel-3 data.

Through a multi-sensor approach, this research disentangles the complex spatial heterogeneous variations between changes in land cover (Landsat data) and land surface temperature (MODIS data), to understand the urban heat island effect dynamics in greater detail for appropriate policy integration.
