 Andrew currently teaches undergraduate and postgraduate Market(ing) Research modules (BM2217 and BM3375) and postgraduate MSc Marketing Research (BMM603). Andrew also teaches Doctoral students at Aston Business School. Previously, Andrew has been involved in teaching Marketing Management, International Marketing, Services Marketing, Consumer Behaviour and Advertising, and Research Methods at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as supervising numerous dissertation projects.

Andrew's primary research stream concerns the application of sociological and psychological theories to develop understanding of the manager—employee—customer (i.e. Service-Profit Chain) interfaces within organisations. With a particular emphasis upon services marketing and leadership processes, this research examines the contribution of various stakeholders towards such outputs as commitment, motivation, stress, satisfaction, service quality, service encounter quality, employee turnover, and organisational citizenship behaviours.

The secondary focus of Andrew’s work is the application of latent variable modelling techniques and how these techniques have filtered into the academic and practitioner community. Current research projects focus upon discriminant validity and confirmatory factor analysis assessment, with particular emphasis on the reporting of these procedures in marketing, management and organisational psychology literatures.
