After taking a MA in zoology at Oxford University (under Richard Dawkins) and a PhD in bioengineering at Reading University, Andrew Jackson pursued a 30-year career in the development of medical products and technologies, working for a major blue-chip company and two of the Cambridge-based engineering consultancies. He then worked for the Faraday Institute as their Director for External Affairs before opting for early retirement to study academic theology. He sat the University of Cambridge Advanced Diploma and MPhil degree in theology (both awarded with distinction and the Divinity Faculty prize) followed by a PhD (recently completed) at the University of Nottingham, entitled ‘The evolutionary logoi: a constructive theological engagement of Maximus the Confessor with evolutionary biology.’
