Biography

Dr. Aurenice Oliveira joined the Electrical Engineering Technology program at Michigan Technological University in spring 2007. She received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), Brazil in 1995, the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2005.

Before joining Michigan Tech, Dr. Oliveira taught several classes in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at North Dakota State University and at Minnesota State University—Moorhead. Her current research interests include modeling of optical fiber communication systems, application of Monte Carlo methods to communication systems, digital signal processing, wireless communications, and engineering education. She has authored or coauthored twelve archival journal papers and twenty-three conference papers.

Dr. Aurenice Oliveira is a member of the Lasers & Electro-Optics Society (LEOS) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), IEEE Women in Engineering Society, and of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). She received the Venice Summer School on Polarization Mode Dispersion Award in 2003. In 1996 and 1998, she was awarded graduate scholarships from the Brazilian Ministry of Education (CAPES) and from the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology (CNPq), respectively. Dr. Oliveira is a reviewer of the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, and IEEE Photonics Technology Letters.
