Andrew G. Allison completed a BSc in Mathematical Science at the The University of Adelaide in 1978. He initially worked for the Division of Horticultural Science of the CSIRO in the areas of DNA and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). Between 1981 and 1995, he worked for an evolving group of telecommunications organisations: Telecom, AOTC, Telstra and Visionstream. Here he gained experience in he gained experience with telephony, electronic data processing, local area networks and cable television. He completed a BEng in Computer Systems Engineering at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at The University of Adelaide in 1995 and then began working as a lecturer in that School.
