Prior to arriving at the University of Massachusetts, Professor Siqueira worked in the Radar Science and Engineering Section at the NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, run by the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California.
From 2000-2001, Dr. Siqueira worked at the Joint Research Centers Global Vegetation Monitoring (formerly the Space Applications Institute) in Ispra, Italy, for studying the monitoring and characterization of global vegetation at a hectare scale using synthetic aperture radar.
Prof. Siqueira has a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan's Radiation Laboratory in Ann Arbor, and a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Dr. Siqueira's PhD thesis, "Wave Propagation and Scattering in Dense Random Media,"  was an experimental, numerical and theoretical analysis of how electromagnetic fields scatter from and propagate through random media when there is a strong interaction between the fields and the components of the random medium.
