Andrew is responsible for the development and management of projects in support of the college’s estates strategy.
His office is located on the second floor of staircase OB1 on the main college site, next to the Gilbert Library (OB1/18).
His office hours are from 8.30am to 5pm Wednesday and Thursday, and 8am-2.30pm on Fridays. Appointments are preferred (please call or email).
A colonial and imperial historian, Andrew’s previous work examines British rule in North America during the period of the Seven Years’ War. He received his doctorate in Modern History from Lincoln College, Oxford in 2008, researching British colonial administration prior to the American Revolution. Previously he received a BA and MA in American Studies, from the University of Wales, Swansea.
His first monograph, Colonial America and the Earl of Halifax, 1748-1761, was published in November 2014 by Oxford University Press. It was shortlisted by the Royal Historical Society for the 2015 Gladstone Prize. He has also produced a biographical entry for the 2nd Earl of Halifax for the Oxford Bibliographies series.
Andrew’s forthcoming research projects focus upon the complex political, inter-personal and professional networks operating in Britain and America in the late colonial period. He is currently researching his next book, Frederick & George: The First Minister and his King, 1768–1783, exploring the career of the British Prime Minister Lord North, and his professional relationship with George III.
His interests also include the expansion of colonial privateering in the eighteenth century, and the foundation and development of the empire’s quasi-autonomous bodies – in particular, the East India Company and various American charter corporations – and their complex trans-national interactions with the imperial centre in London.
