Mauricio Silveira

University of Sao PauloBrazil

Dr. Silveira has BS degree in Mathematics from the University of São Paulo (1972), BS degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of São Paulo (1988), Masters Degree in Mathematics from the University of São Paulo (1977) and Doctoral Degree in Mathematics from the University of São Paulo (1985). He accomplished two post-doctoral programs, being the first one carried through the Department of Microwave and Optics, College of Electrical Engineering, University of Campinas, (1991-1992), and the second one close to the College of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, the USA, (1993-1994). During the period (2001-2003), he was strongly involved with a project as a Researcher collaborator in the area of Optical Communications Networks, close to the Department of Communications, College of Electrical Engineering, University of Campinas. Furthermore, he developed two projects together the Department of Microwave and Optics, College of Electrical Engineering, University of Campinas, both of them related with a Researcher Scholarship (PQ) with the financial support of the Brazilian Federal Institution of Research: CNPq, (1996-1999). As a Full Academic Researcher, he was Professor close to the Institutions: IME-USP (1971-72, 1975), DM-UFSCar (1976-1995), FE-USF (1974-1975, 1996-2000), DTE-INATEL (2001-2005), and FEE-PUC (2006-2012). He had some participations as an Advisor Member in some Trial Committees of projects involving innovative technologies close to the Foundation of Research of the Minas Gerais State, FAPEMIG, where the global financial were provided by the FINEP, FIEMG and the FAPEMIG, and must be allocated for the Small and Medium Companies of the Electronic Valley, in the Brasil ranking. In August 2006, for his academic productivity reached in the post-doctoral program developed at the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota Supercomputer Institute, he had his name included in the Trial Committee that had the obligation to analyze all financial resources allocated for the Foundation of Research of the São Paulo State, FAPESP. In the same month his name was indicated by five (05) FELLOW Members of the IEEE, all Researchers belong to others countries, for the position as a SENIOR MEMBER of this Institute, that was proclaimed in some IEEE International Congress organized in Bangladesh, IN. Currently, he is trying to develop some activities as collaborator researcher close to the Department of Telecommunications, College of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UNICAMP; where it is under analysis his professional collaboration to develop a project with the Academic position as a Visitant Professor. It has some experiences in research related with the areas of Electrical Engineering, with emphasis in: Electromagnetic Theory, Microwaves Structures, Propagation of Waves, Antennas, etc…, inserted in the great area of RF Devices. The main interesting are focused in applied research involving new technologies involving Applied Electromagnetism, HDTV Systems as well as Digital Communications. Dr. Silveira is a Member of the Regional Council of Engineering and Architecture, CREA, SP, BRASIL, and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, IEEE, USA. Currently he is an Advisor Member of the State Foundation of Research of the State Foundation of the Minas Gerais, FAPEMIG, and had the same academicals positions close to the National Council of Scientific Development, CNPq, as well as at the State Foundation of the São Paulo, FAPESP, at the time he was Associate (Full) Professor close to the DM/UFSCar and the FEE/PUC/Campinas, respectively. Dr. Silveira maintains the position as the President Director of the DNAx Institute of Research, Geneva, IL, USA, and has the same professional status at the Instituto de Pesquisas Aplicadas DNAx, Santa Rita do Sapucaí, MG, Brasil, whose by-laws are currently undergoing a complete overhaul.
