André is a postdoctoral fellow at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behavior at the Radboud University. He is broadly interested in the mechanisms that underlie social cognition and social decision making, which he investigates using a combination of behavioural, neuroimaging, and computational modeling methods. 

Previously, André was PhD student at the Behavioural Science Institute of the Radboud University. The main aim of his PhD project was to improve our understanding of person perception by providing steps towards the formalisation and integration of existing models.

For example, in what sense do people “categorise” other people, and how do single process connectionist models fit to dual process social categorisation models? During his master’s project, André also conducted fMRI research on the neural mechanisms that may underlie our tendency to imitate other people’s behaviour.
