Professor and scientist, his research revolves around noise pollution.

Michel André is the Director of the Laboratory of Applied Bioacoustics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. He holds a degree in Biotechnology Engineering from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (Toulouse, France) and a PhD from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain); his dissertation was on sperm whale acoustics and noise pollution. He is currently a lecturer at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and has worked as a research assistant and as a scientist in California.

His research involves the development of acoustic technologies for the control of noise pollution in the marine environment; the study of the biological and pathological impact of noise pollution on marine organisms acoustic pathways; the mathematical, physical, morpho- and electro-physiological mechanisms of the cetacean bio-sonar as well as the extraction of the information from their acoustic signals.
