Andrew specialises in structural biomechanics, and in particular the development of biofidelic free boundary condition numerical models. His most recent research has focused on creating finite element models of the pelvis and femur, in which the effects of muscles and ligaments are explicitly included, and the use of fixed constraints on bone is avoided. He has an ongoing interest in the development of constitutive and structure models, assessing whether components of the musculoskeletal system can be modelled and analysed using similar approaches to those used in structural engineering.
