Andre’s research interests broadly lie in understanding human motion. Over time, his curiosity about biomechanics has led him to study increasingly smaller systems within the body. As an undergraduate, he applied electrical stimulation to human subjects and measured their reactionary dynamics. As an engineer at Philips, he developed cardiovascular tools to diagnose and treat blood vessel obstructions. Now as a PhD student and Ford Predoctoral Fellow, he works to illustrate the mechanical connection between molecules and cells using molecular and mesoscale simulation techniques. When he’s not wondering why his code is not working, you can find him venturing outside on foot or on bike, lifting weights, or sleeping on the floor.
