Andrew work on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English literature, with a particular focus on the works of Edmund Spenser, Philip Sidney, and William Shakespeare. His research to date has emphasised early modern legal history, Elizabethan colonial and military activity in Ireland, textual studies (including palaeography and manuscript studies), the sixteenth-century reception of Academic and Pyrrhonist epistemology, early modern secretarial practice, and the theory and practice of allegory in the sixteenth century. He is currently working on several editorial projects: (with Christopher Burlinson) an edition of Ralph Kenvet's 1635 A Supplement of the Faery Queene; several editions of the works of Edmund Spenser; and (with Anne Dunan Page) the letters of Sir Thomas Browne for a new Collected Works under the general care of Claire Preston. He is also editing sixteenth-century materials for OUP's Oxford Scholarly Editions Online project.
