Andy is interested in understandings of collective violence on the Korean peninsula. In particular, he has studied late Joseon rebellions and the 1980 Kwangju Uprising. He is also interested in the 1950-53 Korean War and how the conflict has been represented in both North and South Korean film.
After living for twelve years in Japan and Korea, Andy earned an MA in Korean Studies at Seoul National University and then returned to the UK, earning an MSt in Korean studies at Oxford University and a PhD in Korean History at the University of London. He also worked as an Associate Professor in Korean Studies at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
