Andre is an ornithologist and evolutionary biologist primarily focused on studying the speciation process in Andean and Amazonian birds. His research broadly falls within the fields of systematics, phylogeography, and population and landscape genomics. In the Thom lab, Andre is using whole-genome resequencing data of Amazonian birds to better understand why different portions of the genome provide different patterns of diffusion of alleles across the landscape.
Main hobbies: birding, running, and playing violin.
