Andy McIntosh

Andy McIntosh now retired from the University of Leeds, holds a visiting chair in Thermodynamics and Combustion Theory, and is adjunct Professor at Mississippi State University. He has lectured and researched in these fields for over 30 years. He has a PhD in Combustion Theory from the Aerodynamics Department of what was then Cranfield Institute of Technology (now Cranfield University), a DSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Wales and worked for a number of years at the Royal Aircraft Establishment. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the Institute of Energy, the Institute of Physics, and the Royal Aeronautical Society. A chartered mathematician and engineer, and author of over 195 papers, articles, and patents, his work has included the study of the interaction of acoustics and combustion. His work has also included the investigations into the fundamental link between thermodynamics and information, and he has been involved in the area of biomimetics where the minute combustion chamber of the bombardier beetle has inspired a novel spray technology. He now lectures widely on origins, and has authored the book Genesis for Today (Day One, 6th Edition, 2017), Genesis 1-11 – a verse by verse commentary (Day One, 2016), Wonders of Creation – Design in a fallen world (with Stuart Burgess and Brian Edwards, Day One, 2017), and contributed to the books In Six Days (Master Books, 2009), Should Christians Embrace Evolution? (IVP, 2009), and Origins – Examining the evidence (Truth in Science, 2011). He is co director of the UK education think tank Truth in Science and married, with 3 children and 6 grandchildren.
