Dr. Ivan T. Lima, Jr., received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Electronics) from the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), Salvador, Brazil, in 1995, the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Electromagnetics) from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, Brazil, in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (Photonics) from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, USA, in 2003.
From 1986 to 1996, Dr. Lima was with Banco do Brasil (Bank of Brazil), where he served as the Information Technology Adviser of the State Superintendence of Bahia, Brazil. From 1998 to 2003, he was a Research Assistant in the Optical Fiber Photonics Laboratory at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. In 2003, Dr. Lima became a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at North Dakota State University (NDSU), Fargo, ND, USA, where he is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with tenure. The ECE Department at NDSU offers B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering. In 2004, Dr. Lima established the Photonics & Bioengineering Laboratory in the ECE Department at NDSU to carry out theoretical and experimental research in photonics and in bioengineering. From May 2007 to October 2008, Dr. Lima was also a Faculty Associate of the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at NDSU, where he carried out research and development in distributed computer systems in the Electronic Systems Laboratory. From October 2008 to August 2009, he was also a Visiting Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada.
Since July 2009, Dr. Lima has been a senior member of the IEEE Photonics Society and of the IEEE EMBS society. In 2006, Dr. Lima was as a Faculty Fellow in the 2006 Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship Program in the Air Force Research Laboratory at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, USA, where he contributed to the program "Solid-State Laser Source Development" during the summer of 2006. Dr. Lima received the 2003 IEEE LEOS Graduate Student Fellowship Award and he also received the Venice Summer School on Polarization Mode Dispersion Award in 2003. In February 2004, he was co-instructor (invited) of the Short Course SC210: Hands-on polarization measurement workshop, which was offered at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exposition (OFC) 2004, Los Angeles, CA. In March 2005, he also served as co-instructor (invited) of the short courses SC210-A and SC210-B at OFC/NFOEC 2005, and SC210 at OFC/NFOEC 2006 and OFC/NFOEC 2007, which were held in Anaheim, CA, and SC210 at OFC/NFOEC 2008, OFC/NFOEC 2009 and OFC/NFOEC 2010 that were held in San Diego, CA. These short courses were sponsored by the Optical Society of America (OSA). Dr. Lima is a Full Member of the Society for Scientific Exploration.
Dr. Lima's research interests include optical communications, optical coherence tomography, volumetric displays, and biomedical engineering. He authored and coauthored 33 archival journal papers, 60 conference papers and presentations, one book chapter, one U.S. patent, and one provisional U.S. patent. His publications received 626 citations by May 26, 2012 (Source: Google Scholar). In his academic career at NDSU, Dr. Lima has served as principal investigator of five grants totaling $346,174.

"Humanity, you gave me a kind and loving family that raised me, even without knowing who I was. You gave me freedom and opportunities to pursue my dreams, even though you never asked anything in return. Despite having much received, I will not be fulfilled until accomplishing the biggest of all my dreams: to serve you with the best that I have to offer until the very last of my days."
