André received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands, in 1990 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1998. In 1998 he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Physiology at the University of Sydney, funded by fellowship from the Garnett Passe and Rodney Williams memorial foundation. In 1999 he became a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney and promoted to Reader in 2004. In 2011 André became a research professor at UWS.

His research focuses on three main areas: neuromorphic engineering, bioelectronics, and spatial audio. He was identified as a world leader in neuromorphic engineering research in May 2006 by an independent article in IEEE Spectrum, the IEEE largest circulation magazine. He has authored more than 100 papers and is an inventor of more than 30 patents. He is a founder of three start-up companies: VAST Audio, Personal Audio, and Heard Systems.

André leads the newly created Bioelectronics and Neuroscience (BENS) research group at UWS.
