Andre studied Chemistry at King's College London before moving to UCL to conduct his PhD with Professor Charles Marson. From there he moved to the University of Cambridge for his postdoctoral research, first with Dr Florian Hollfelder in Biochemistry developing synthetic enzymes, and then Professor Steven V. Ley CBE FRS in the Department of Chemistry where he developed organocatalytic methodology, as well as some medicinal chemistry. In 2005 he moved to the University of Reading to begin his independent research career and in 2012 he was promoted to Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry. Then in October 2016 the research group returned to Andre's alma mater at King's College London. Andre is also the Associate Editor of the RSC's New Journal of Chemistry.
