Silvania Pereira

Silvania F. Pereira studied Physics in Brazil, where she received her B.S.and M.S. degrees. Afterwards she went to the USA where she got her Ph.D. in 1993. Her Ph.D. thesis was in the field of experimental quantum optics. Silvania gained her post-doctoral experience at the University of Constance in Germany after receiving the Humboldt fellowship. In addition, she worked as a post-doc for 3 years at the University of Leiden in The Netherlands. Her extensive research experience is in the fields of quantum and classical optics. Currently she holds an Associate Professor position at the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, where she focuses her research in diffraction and vectorial optics, optical far field techniques for nano-particle detection and nano-structure characterization. Further, she is active in PhotonicsNL, a dutch portal for optics and photonics and in the Women in Photonics in NL LinkedIn network. She is a also member of the Dutch Physics Society, the Dutch Network of Women Professors and the European Optical Society.
