Associate Professor of Political Science; Director, Center for Political Participation, Allegheny College
I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. Before coming to Allegheny College, I completed my B.A. at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. My research and teaching interests lie primarily in political behavior, participation, and mobilization.
As a scholar, my research is motivated by a commitment to the ideals of participatory democratic theory. More specifically, my research examines the inherent challenges of participatory democracy and seeks strategies for overcoming these challenges. One of my current projects examines the challenges of mobilizing citizens for collective action. Another examines the challenges of communicating accurate policy information to citizens.
My teaching similarly combines a focus on participatory democracy with my interests in American politics and citizen behavior. Courses I teach include political psychology, politics and the news media, and direct action organizing (social movements and community organizing).
My commitment to participatory democracy also extends beyond my academic work. Prior to joining the faculty at Allegheny College, I worked as a community organizer for the Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) where I contributed to campaigns addressing health care and environmental justice concerns.

Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
I did the first experiments showing altered DNA methylation in cancer. I showed that epigenetic changes (chemical changes other than DNA sequence per se) cause cancer are not simply consequential to it through my studies of the disorder Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome. Later I had the first NIH funded epigenome center. More recently I have developed the idea the genetic variants can control epigenetic stochasticity (plasticity) and phenotype (traits) under evolutionary selection in natural populations, or within an individual in the development of cancer.

Professor of Fashion Design, University of Westminster
Andrew Groves is Professor of Fashion Design at the University of Westminster, and the director of the Westminster Menswear Archive, which he founded in 2016. It houses over 2,000 examples of some of the most significant menswear garments from the last 250 years, including designer fashion, streetwear, everyday dress, sportswear, workwear, and uniforms.
Recognising the relative lack of menswear in other fashion and museum collections, the WMA was established to create a significant teaching collection centred on men’s garments that could be used for object-based research by both design students and the fashion industry. A further key aim was to facilitate and publicise the knowledge and understanding of menswear as a distinct design discipline through public engagement and exhibitions.
The collection holds over 2500 menswear garments from 1780 to the present day, with a primary focus on post-1940s British men's dress - clothing produced, designed, worn, or sold in Britain. It includes designer fashion, streetwear, everyday dress, sportswear, workwear, and uniforms. It receives over 800 visitors annually and is utilised for research purposes by students, academics, and designers in industry. It is inspired by Italian garment archives, specifically the Massimo Osti archive which was non-hierarchal, housing military, utilitarian, industrial, and fashion garments together.
In 2019, Groves co-curated Invisible Men: An Anthology from the Westminster Menswear Archive, the United Kingdom’s largest menswear exhibition to date. It investigated the invisibility of menswear as a result of its inherent design language, which focuses on iterations of archetypal garments intended for specific functional, technical, or military use. It demonstrated how designers have disrupted this by making small but significant modifications to produce results that both replicate and subvert their source material.
In 2021, Groves co-curated the exhibition Undercover – From Necessity to Luxury: The Evolution of Face Coverings During COVID-19. It explored how face coverings evolved over the period of a year, from being a functional PPE object in short supply to becoming an everyday object worn by millions. The WMA collected over a hundred examples of face coverings between April 2020 and April 2021, and the exhibition displayed 52 of these face coverings arranged chronologically to examine how the fashion industry rapidly adapted production, manufacturing, and online marketing to meet shifting consumer demands.
He is currently the principal investigator of the AHRC-funded network project, Locating the absent shadow: exploring connections and encounters in British menswear. This international network is designed to investigate the cultural and industrial connections between London, Liverpool, Manchester, and Milan, Italy, and how they have influenced the production, display, and consumption of British menswear.
