He has authored over 100 scientific publications that appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, J. of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Thorax, Chest, J. of Neuroscience and other leading scientific journals. His research focuses on children development, the neurological basis of imagination, and evolution of language.

Associate Professor in Family Law, Durham University
Andy’s research interests lie in family law, property law, equity and legal history (especially the history of family law). His research critically analyses the legal regulation of formalised and non-formalised adult relationships and, in particular, the property consequences generated by their breakdown. He has presented his research at both national and international conferences.
Andy is currently working on three research projects. The first project focuses on same-sex marriage and same-sex/mixed-sex civil partnership reform. Drawing upon insights from comparative family law, he published with Professor Jens M Scherpe from the University of Aalborg, an edited collection with Intersentia, entitled The Future of Registered Partnerships - Family Recognition beyond Marriage? (details available here). This research, and its implications for policy-makers, forms the foundation of the Reforming Civil Partnerships Project (details available here). In February 2020 Andy gave oral evidence to the Equalities and Human Rights Committee of the Scottish Parliament on the Civil Partnerships (Scotland) Act 2020. He is currently exploring the evolution of 'equal' civil partnerships following the extension to the regime to mixed-sex couples in December 2019.
The second project focuses on domestic and comparative cohabitation reform. Drawing upon comparative family law insights, Andy is currently exploring models of cohabitation reform and potential solutions to the absence of comprehensive cohabitation protections in England and Wales. In particular he is exploring the use of human rights arguments and strategic litigation in this context. In 2021, he launched with Professor Jens Scherpe a major global comparative study that analyses the degree of legal protection afforded to cohabitants in over 40 jurisdictions. The findings will be published in The Legal Status of De Facto Relationships (Intersentia, 2023). In June 2021 he was appointed Specialist Adviser to the Women and Equalities Committee of the UK Parliament to advise on their Rights of Cohabiting Partners Inquiry. He currently advises domestic and overseas policy-makers on cohabitation reform and is working closely with key practitioner organisations such as Resolution with a view to securing reform in the future.
The third project analyses trusts of the family home and family property. Andy has a particular interest in the 'familialisation of property law' evidenced in the development of both the common intention constructive trust and proprietary estoppel. His research has been cited favourably extra-judicially by Lord Kerr, former Justice of the Supreme Court and builds upon Andy’s doctoral research entitled Judicial Discretion in Ownership Disputes over the Family Home.
Andy also holds first class degrees from the University of Durham (LLB (ELS) involving an ERASMUS year at the bilingual University of Fribourg in Switzerland) and the University of Cambridge (LLM (Magdalene College)).
Andy is currently an Academic Fellow of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple (details available here).

Senior Lecturer in Marketing, Monash University
I'm a Senior Lecturer in Marketing at Monash University and hold a PhD in Marketing from The University of Auckland.
My research focuses on how people and companies navigate the boundaries of culture, gender, and class in globalising and digitalising cultures of consumption. Under this broad theme, my research spans varied contexts. For example, a recent study published in Journal of Consumer Research examines how international K-pop fans manage the tension between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. In another project, published in Journal of Business Research, I map key approaches that firms use to craft food products for culturally diverse markets. Finally, in another study that was just published in International Marketing Review, I analyse how unconventional luxury collaborations help brands adapt to changing tastes among young Chinese consumers. I draw on cross-disciplinary, critical, and poststructuralist modes of theorising and use a range of qualitative methodologies.
