Daniela Oliveira

 
 

Daniela Oliveira received her BS and MS degree in Computer Science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil in 1999 and 2001, respectively. After working as a software engineer for three years, she started her PhD program at the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis. In June 2010, she received her PhD in Computer Science from the University of California at Davis, where she specializes in computer security and operating systems. Her current research focuses on employing virtual machine and operating systems collaboration to protect OS kernels. She is also interested in understanding the nature of software vulnerabilities. She is the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award 2012 and the 2012 United States Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from President Obama.
