Overview

Andrew graduated from UQ’s Commerce program in 1998 and worked for several years in IT risk management for one of the Big-4 accounting/consulting firms. He then moved to Georgia State University in Atlanta, USA, to complete his Ph.D., followed by seven years at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where he became a tenured Associate Professor. He returned to UQ in May 2012.

Andrew has taught information systems in undergraduate, graduate, and executive programs, in several counties. He has a particular interest in IT governance and control, IT development, and IT strategy. He undertakes research in three areas. His first area focuses on how effectively organisations use IT. For example, he has been studying the effective use of electronic health records in health authorities. His second research area focused on improving methods to analyse and design IT systems. For example, he has examined ways to improve the specification of user requirements. His third research stream focuses on improving theories and methods used by researchers in the Information Systems discipline.

He has published in and served on the editorial boards of the Journal of the Association for Information Systems, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, and other outlets. He recently completed a term as Representative for the Americas for the Association of Information Systems and commenced a term as International Representative for the Academy of Management (OCIS Division).

Research Impacts

My research is intended to help organisations to analyse, design, and use their information systems more effectively. Much of my work at the moment is in the health information technology area.
