Personal profile

Biography

Andrew is a Professional Clinical Lead Dietitian in the NHS with a specialist clinical and research interest in nephrology. His research focuses on the nutritional management of renal disease, in particular, the clinical practice of manipulating dietary potassium to manage serum potassium levels in chronic kidney disease.

A lot of his work has examined the social and psychological impact of following dietary recommendations. One of his qualitative studies showed that following low potassium diets in social situations may reduce enjoyment when eating out with family and friends. Another study systematically reviewed all the current published studies that reported the effect of a dietary potassium restriction on mortality and disease progression. They found that lower intakes of dietary potassium had an uncertain effect on disease progression and mortality in people with CKD stages 3 to 5 (including those on dialysis). His future research will use this information to help ascertain if low potassium diets are an essential intervention for the non-medical management of serum potassium in CKD.

Andrew is also investigating the bioavailability of dietary potassium in mixed and plant-based diets consumed by people with chronic kidney disease.   

Andrew began his clinical career with a first class BSc honours degree in dietetics and an award winning MRes in clinical research before going on to complete a PhD in renal dietetics. He has lectured and provided clinical supervision to students on the Coventry pre-registration dietetics course, and mentored clinical colleagues to develop bespoke clinical academic career pathways. 

Andrew was awarded National Institute for Health Research Clinical Academic Fellowships in 2012 and 2017 alongside several National Institute for Health Research Patient and Public Involvement grants (2016-2018). He takes a multi-disciplinary team approach to research and has managed collaborations with medics, statisticians, biomedical engineers, dietitians and psychologists. He has contributed to several National Institute for Health Research multi-centre clinical study steering groups in nephrology and to the British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition’s Nutrition Screening Survey in the UK and Republic of Ireland (2010).

Andrew is a member of the British Dietetic Association and registered with the Health Care Professions Council.
