Andre (he/him/él) holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado School of Mines and is a recipient of the Ford Predoctoral Fellowship. He is co-advised by Prof. Grace O’Connell and Prof. Mohammad Mofrad. His current research utilizes computational modeling, such as finite element analysis and molecular dynamics, to study how cell adhesion molecules affect cell and tissue behavior. When he is not contemplating why his code is not working, you can find him serving the campus community as a Diversity and Community Fellow or doing some form of physical activity.
