Andrew's research focuses on the application of social psychology to a range of contexts. He has a particular interest in the psychology of intergroup relations and uses various methodologies to study this. This includes discursive psychology research into collective victimhood as well as more recent research using the implicit association test to explore linguistic bias. He also applies social psychological theory to understanding the use and design of social media in various contexts.
