Andrew is undertaking a part time MSc by research at the University of Edinburgh (supervised by Dr Gurå Bergkvist and Dr Alastair Macdonald), and RZSS (Dr Gill Murray-Dickson). His research interest is in the use of DNA collected from the guts of blowflies, captured in tropical forest to identify the species of mammal occurring there.
He has a particular interest in the Seram bandicoot (Rhynchomeles prattorum); a marsupial known only from seven specimens collected on the Indonesian island of Seram in 1920.
