Mr André Nogueira

André Nogueira, Ph.D., is the Co-Founder and Deputy Director of the Design Laboratory at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where he also serves as a Research Scientist and Instructor for the Department of Health Policy and Management. André investigates how design frameworks and methods can help improve the well-being of people, organizations, and the ecosystems within which they live. His work has been funded by diverse organizations, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, US Fish and Wildlife Services, Chicago Community Trust, USAID, and awarded by Fast Company and Core 77. Throughout his journey, André has been an entrepreneur, creating and leading a design studio working across scales and sectors, from product and furniture design to institutional buildings and new neighborhoods. He has also led intrapreneurial initiatives in both the corporate world, helping organizations build their sustainability competence, and in academic institutions in the US and Brazil, building design laboratories that expand their capacity to bridge theory and practice through cross-sectorial partnerships. Combined, these experiences led him to be awarded in the first 40 under 40 Public Health Catalyst Awards by the Boston Public Health Congress. In parallel to his work at Harvard, André also advises senior executives and leaders in the public and social sectors interested in building design capacity within their organizations.
