José Roberto Castilho Piqueira
- USPFull Professor
José Roberto Castilho Piqueira was born in Sorocaba, SP, Brazil, in 1952. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Universidade de São Paulo in 1974, 1983, and 1987, respectively. From 1974 to 1994, he worked in several telecommunication projects for Brazilian electronic and service industries, designing and developing circuits, equipment, and systems. Since 1994, he has been dedicated to teaching and research at Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo, being the Dean (2014-2018) and participating in projects for Brazilian Oil Agency and Brazilian Navy. Currently, he is a Full Professor, working with time distribution networks and running a laboratory where analytical and numerical studies support electronic and computational experiments, considering the several possible topologies and quantum control models. Besides, as synchronous complex networks appear in many aspects of human life, he works with some biological models by using differential equations and proposing complexity measures for some spreading phenomena.
