Eugênio Eduardo de Oliveira holds a BSc. degree in Agriculture (2003) and an MSc. degree in Entomology (2005) from the Federal University of Vicosa (UFV) in Brazil. He then moved to Germany (Cologne) and pursued his Ph.D. course in Zoology (Neurophysiology) at the Cologne University in 2010. After a two years period as Associate Visiting Researcher at the Department of Entomology and Genetics and Neuroscience Programs of the Michigan State University (MSU) – USA, he returned to Brazil in March of 2012 as the first Adjunct Professor hired by the newly established Department of Entomology at UFV. Currently, he is an Associate Professor and a permanent member of Departmental Committee for Science and Technology Commission and is an accredited supervisor of Master’s and Ph.D. students at two programs (Entomology as well as Ecology) at UFV and in another Brazilian University (i.e., the Graduate Program in Biotechnology at Federal University of Tocantins – UFT). Prof. Oliveira is also a permanent member of the Education Chamber from the Biological and Health Sciences Centre at the UFV and he has served on the editorial boards of national (Revista Agropecuaria Tecnica – Federal University of Paraiba – UFPB) and international scientific journals (Revista de Ciencias Agricolas (Colombia) Invertebrate Neuroscience National Council of Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq)). He is currently also a fellow (Category 1-D) of the National Council of Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). He has published more than 90 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, edited two books, and has supervised 6 Post-Docs, and worked as the main advisor of 5 Ph.D. and 15 MSc students. Since he was a freshman at UFV Prof. Oliveira has been working with Entomological Sciences, especially with the insects-pesticides interactions, which involve target (insect pests) and non-target (parasitoids, predators, pollinators and secondary insect pests) organisms. In the current decade, his lab has contributed to the understanding of the physiological basis of the insecticides (currently marketed or novel discoveries) and other pollutants (heavy metals, herbicides, vertebrate hormones) actions on terrestrial and aquatic insects.
