In '13/'14 André was a fellow-in-residence at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg Institute for Advanced Study in Germany.

André’s past and current teaching involves a variety of courses, including an undergraduate course in Behavioral and Experimental Economics and a graduate course in International Business and Trade. André is further active in various task forces and steering groups.

André's research focuses on two interrelated themes:
- The first theme concerns measuring and documenting various types of differences and distances between countries and other human groups such as ethnicities;
- The second theme concerns the impact of these differences and intergroup distances on economic actors and on their socioeconomic interactions with actors belonging to other groups.

André’s research combines disciplines, particularly economics, international business and sociology. His work has been published in a variety of internationally recognized outlets, including the Journal of Development Economics, Journal of International Business Studies, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA and American Sociological Review. He also publishes regularly in practitioner journals.
