Andre is currently a doctorate student at the University of Sao Paulo in Piracicaba, Brazil. He has investigated the effective environmental sustainability indicators of the land use changes resulting from sugarcane and other agroenergy crops, with a special focus on soil carbon dynamics and soil invertebrates biodiversity. Franco states his main objectives of his research as promoting field measurements to track changes of these environmental sustainability indicators in the landscape scale, and to propose a way of integrating the different sustainability indicators.
