For his doctoral research, Andre worked on the molecular genetic basis of counting among groups of cell, using interspecific variation in ovariole number among the Drosophilids as a model.

Andre was then awarded an ASEE/NSF Small Business Postdoctoral Research Diversity Fellow at InnoGenomics Technologies in New Orleans, where he worked in the forensic DNA industry.

He went on to win a postdoctoral research fellowship from the NSF, which he held in the lab of Marcus Kronforst at the University of Chicago.

He is currently a President’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Michigan.
