Andrew is a crop physiologist, specialising in wheat, particularly wheat nitrogen use efficiency. In the course of his work, he has developed an interest in high throughput phenotyping of field experiments, and particularly in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for collecting data from field experiments. As part of his work, Andrew manages several field experiments each year, currently totalling about 10 000 individual plots. Andrew has co-hosted several international visitors, and each year manages some students and casual workers who assist full-time staff with the field measurements. In the past, he worked on perennial biomass crops, particularly Miscanthus and switchgrass.
