Andy's research specialities are sexual and gender-based violence, queer criminology, immigration regulation, and homophobic and transphobic violence. Originally trained in history, Andy's research is interdisciplinary, using methods and approaches from historical studies, legal studies, criminology, psychology, feminist studies and digital humanities to analyse how experiences of and responses to violence change over time, to examine the nature of the criminal justice system, and the shifting relationship between law and society. Andy's research combines quantitative and qualitative methods to explain longitudinal trends in changing legal, political, and social contexts.

Andy is the author of 27 peer-reviewed publications on these topics, has held numerous large-scale national grants including the current ARCDP (2019-2024) ’Australian Violence: Understanding Victimisation in History’ ($388,904).
