Gavin Andrews
Professor, Health, Aging & Society

Professor Gavin J. Andrews is a leading health geographer. His wide-ranging research explores the dynamics between space/place and: aging, holistic medicine, health care work, phobias, sports and fitness, health histories and popular music. Much of his work is positional and considers the progress, state-of-the-art and future of health geography.

In recent years he has developed an interest in non-representational theory. This approach challenges the very nature and purpose of social science - which has tended to dig deeper and deeper for meaning - by animating the immediacy and ‘taking place’ of health and wellbeing; how health and wellbeing emerge in space-time often non-consciously or less-than-fully consciously.
