In 2017, Oliver was awarded "The President's Award" and "CLASS New Researcher Award" by City University of Hong Kong to recognize his exemplary contributions to research and professional education that have helped the University and College to achieve local and global distinction. More importantly, he was granted an early substantiation of appointment (tenured) and promotion to Associate Professor in 2017. Recently, he was awarded "The Outstanding Supervisor Award" to recognize his excellent research supervision in 2018 and "CLASS Teaching Innovation Award - Team Award" for his innovative teaching at the team category in 2019. When he was in the U.S., Oliver interned and later employed by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPDC) Homicide Case Review Units as one of its first two Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Violent Criminals Apprehension Program (ViCAP) analysts.

Oliver's research focuses on sexual homicide, offender profiling, sex offending, homicide, stalking behavior, and Asian criminology. He published widely on these topics, especially in the area of sexual homicide. As of October 2021, Oliver has published over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters; and presented at numerous international, regional, and local academic conferences. He has since published five academic books, with two as the sole-authored monographs on sexual homicide (Palgrave Macmillan, April 2015; and Springer Nature, June 2019), and another three as a co-editor of edited volumes on the psycho-criminological perspective of Asian criminal justice (i.e., police, correctional, and legal psychology; Routledge, March 2017) the international perspective of stalking behavior (John Wiley & Sons, April 2020), and the African mental health and criminal justice system (Palgrave Macmillan, August 2021). His book on the stalking behavior was selected and awarded the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title 2020. Oliver is now working on his next sole-authored monographs on sexual offending in Asia (to be published under his Wiley’s book series on “Psycho-Criminology of Crime, Mental Health, and the Law”). He is a Senior Editor of Cogent Social Sciences (criminology and criminal justice section), Associate Editor of Frontiers in Psychology (forensic and legal psychology specialty section), Associate Editor of Heliyon Psychology (expertise on forensic psychology and criminology), Associate Editor of International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology (IJOTCC), Editorial Advisory Board Member of Journal of Criminal Justice (JCJ), Editorial Board Member of Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment (SA), International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH), and several other peer-reviewed journals; and an ad-hoc reviewer for over 80 peer-reviewed journals and academic publishers.
