Andy is recognised as an international expert on investigation and investigative interviewing with a range of academic and professional publications since 2003.

He is the the co-author of the leading handbook on investigative interview techniques, Investigative Interviewing; The Conversation Management Approach published in 2013 in conjunction with his mentor and long-term collaborator Professor Eric Shepherd. This book has been purchased by investigators across the globe and is renowned for its practical approach to this complex subject.

He is also Editor of The Psychology of Criminal Investigation: From Theory to Practise (2018). In a world where evidence based practise is seen as both desirable and efficient this book assesses just how much research theory has been adopted by policing worldwide. The chapters in this book are jointly written by leading academics and practitioners. This project was conceived and completed with his long time academic supervisor Professor Becky Milne and reflects their belief in the benefit of collaborations between academics and practitioners to improve investigation and criminal justice.
