Andre is working on the developments in the UK's leading land surface model (JULES), which forms the land part of the Met Office climate models. He specialises in terrestrial carbon and nutrient dynamics. During his research in C-CASCADES project, he developed an extension to the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) which includes representation of processes related to DOC in soil and its transport out of the soil to the river system (JULES-DOCM).

He is currently enrolled in CRESCENDO and AFEX projects to include representation of N and P in the JULES model. The new developments include the N and P fluxes within vegetation and soil components as well as the specification of pools and processes related to N and P cycling within the soil column. He obtained his Ph.D. from Exeter University in 2019, where he studied earth system modelling.
