Andre's involvement with perinatal statistics began in 1995 at the Queen's Medical Centre P.R.A.M. unit in Nottingham working under Jason Gardosi and progressed to the Perinatal Audit and Institute in 1999. His particular research interests centre around fetal growth modelling. Currently there are more than 10 perinatal research papers with his name as second or subsequent author.
