Andre Santos Nouri is an architect and urbanist who specialises in interdisciplinary climate resilient planning and design, environmental management and modelling, urban climates, human biometeorology, sustainable development practices, and bottom-up climate change adaptation. He has undertaken research in numerous countries, including through on-going international collaborations, and acquired/coordinated international project funding, including from the European-Union’s-Horizon 2020 / Marie-Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement. Having taught in New Zealand, Romania, Portugal, his last position was as an Assistant Professor at Bilkent University, Türkiye. Currently, he serves as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, NOVA School of Science and Technology, Portugal; in association to this Department, he is a member of the MARE—Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre; he also serves as a Visiting Scientist at the Chair of Environmental Meteorology within the Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources at Albert-Ludwigs-University, Germany.


Development of multiple spatio-temporal scale human-centred risk assessment and monitoring through the application of multiple biometeorological models in association with data retrieved from numerous sources, including satellite imaging, meteorological station measurements and in-situ climatic apparatus. These are united with the pressing need to accompany the developing climate change adaptation agenda through interdisciplinary climate resilient planning and design through a ‘human-centred approach’. Continuously anchored to urban sustainable development goals, research efforts are structured around three pillars: (1) improved risk identification and environmental monitoring that is broken into particularities of individual variables (e.g., radiation fluxes, relative humidity, wind patterns, and air/surface temperatures) which are then tailored to understand consequences upon both the urban and human energy models; (2) long-term sustainable decision making and design supported by energy-balance-model based indices within divergent measure typologies that moreover embrace the peripatetic human behavioural dynamics that carry paramount effects upon cyclical patterns of human activity and wellbeing; and, (3) communication efforts of not just the risk patterns themselves to the public, but their integration within sustainable design rationales themselves.
