Ms Jacqueline Damas

Jacqueline Damas is an Assistant Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Information and Communication Technologies (CoICT), UDSM, Tanzania. Since April 2014, she joined the Technical University of Dresden, Germany as a Research Associate majoring in microwave photonics systems realization on printed circuit boards. The focus is on the radio over fibre transmission at the interface between microwave and photonics techniques for high-speed and microwave generation, processing and conversion as well as the distribution and transmission of millimetre wave signals via broadband optical links.

Jacqueline received a Master of Science degree by thesis specialized in lightning protection of overhead transmission lines in 2008 from the University of Dar es Salaam. In her thesis, she developed a model for surges and lightning strike overvoltage protection for the overhead telephone line in Tanzania. Prior to her MSc programmes, Jacquline graduated with a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from the Makerere University Uganda, 2002.

Jacqueline’s research interest is on simulation and design in the areas of Microwave Photonics, Optical Fiber Communication, Optoelectronics, Mobile Communication, Electronics Engineering, RF Engineering, Lightning Protection, Electromagnetic waves induction and propagation on metals and Electromagnetic Compatibility. She has publications in several international peer-reviewed journals.
