Andrew is currently working on an ESRC-funded project led by Dr. Nick Gill: "Fair and Consistent? Are asylum appeal hearings the same wherever they are heard?" This study examines the process of appealing against initially negative asylum decisions in order to identify what factors differ between hearing centres across the UK.

Previously Andrew has conducted extensive research for his PhD in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands, which was concerned with migrant deaths and securitization practices, while based at the University of Southern California. While at the International Boundaries Research Unit at Durham University, his research investigated the developing practices of border management conducted by the EU agency Frontex, particularly at the Greek-Turkish border.
