Andrew leads the Big Innovation Centre’s research on markets, place and networks, looking at how innovation works in practice. His research focuses on how the UK economy is changing, how businesses and customers interact in an internet-enabled world, and which parts of the economy are most likely to undergo rapid innovation in the future. These questions have wide-ranging implications for many areas of government policy, from investment priorities to market design.
