Lecturer in addiction and motivation at the University of Liverpool, UK.
Associate editor for Substance Use and Misuse.
Review editor for Frontiers in Eating Behaviour.
Editorial consultant for Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology.
In addition to my research work and publications, I co-ordinated the University of Liverpool addiction group contribution to the Medical Research Council festival of science (2016). This included a Meet the Scientist event at the world museum, Liverpool.
I am also a regular blogger for the Mental Elf (http://www.thementalelf.net/author/andrew-jones/): I blog on numerous topics from pharmacological treatments for smoking, placebo effects and cost effectiveness of interventions in addiction. These blogs are well received and lead to significant online attention and debate with scientists and the general public.
As an organisation, we continue to function during the developing pandemic.
We are following all government and Charity Commission guidance in respect of staff and reporting issues.
Our funding schemes remain open and we are continuing to programme our conferences planned for November 2020.
