In 2006 Andrew took a six-month sabbatical at the Nestlé Research Centre, Switzerland during the establishment of their Cognitive Sciences group. He acts as a consultant/expert advisor to many industry bodies, including various Fortune 500 companies. He works closely with industry to allow rapid translation of research into evidence-based products for brain health.
