Over the years Luciene taught many courses in Cartography and GIS, both at undergraduate and graduate level. She gave guest lectures, tutorials and courses at universities and conferences in many cities around Brazil. She is leading Cartography and GIS research at Geodetic Science Program and published over 20 journal papers in this field.

> Luciene has provided us huge support in our education efforts esp in establishing Open Source Geospatial Labs in Brazil and now is actively helping and supporting colleagues in other universities in Brazil and across South America to start Open Source Geospatial Labs in their universities.
> I also had the opportunity of working with her when she visited Nottingham University for a one year visiting research fellowship. During her time at Nottingham, she actively contributed to "Geo for All" initiative and also helped build many collaborations in Open GIS.

Now back in her university in Brazil, i am sure she will further build more momentum for OSGeo's education activities there.
