André Oliveira holds a Ph.D. in International Health (NOVA-IHMT), an M.Sc. in Geographic Information Systems and Science (NOVA-IMS), and a degree in Geography and Regional Planning (University of Lisbon). Between 2006 and 2010, he was part of the team that developed and managed the Public Health Emergency Support System (SSESP) at the Directorate-General for Health, an online epidemiological surveillance system designed to monitor daily demand for emergency consultations in hospitals and health centers. Its architecture integrated several technologies, such as production databases (Oracle) and GIS/WebGIS tools (ArcGIS/ArcGIS Server). More recently, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (CCIAM/CE3C), and a Researcher at NOVA Cidade Urban Analytics Lab. He has worked, in both labs, on modelling climate impacts to Human Health, in the context of climate change and urban environments. He has published in several international peer-reviewed journals, such as Nature Scientific Reports, Global and Planetary Change, and Geospatial Health, amongst others, and is also the author of two book chapters.
