Andrew has over 20 years experience in quantum optics and quantum information. After doctoral work at the Australian National University and Universit.t Konstanz, Germany, Andrew worked as a Postdoctoral Scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA. He joined the University of Queensland in October 1999, establishing the Quantum Technology Laboratory.

Andrew is interested in exploring quantum mechanics, particularly by exploiting quantum information concepts and technologies. In his role as a Senior Researcher at the Special Research Centre for Quantum Computation, Andrew established experimental and theoretical capability in producing, analysing, and using photonic qubits. In 2003 Andrew joined the Centre for Quantum Computer Technology and with the advent of CQC2T in 2011, Andrew commenced his current role.

Andrew is an Australian Research Council Federation Fellow, a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America, and winner of the 2010 Pawsey Medal from the Australian Academy of Science.
