With pleasure the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies (OGAPS) welcomes our newly named Assistant Provost, Dr. Rosana Moreira, P.E. Dr. Moreira will assume her one-third time appointment on September 1, 2014. Dr. Moreira currently serves as a professor and assistant department head in the Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering.
Dr. Moreira brings a wealth of teaching, research and administrative experience to OGAPS. She received her B.S. in Agricultural Engineering from Brazil’s Campinas State University in 1980, and continued her education at Michigan State University, earning both her M.S. and Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering. Her research interests include food processing engineering and food safety.
I am very excited for a highly qualified individual such as Dr. Moreira to join the OGAPS team. She fills a vital position and will help continue our mission to provide quality support services to all Texas A&M graduate students, faculty and staff.
