From June 1985 to early 1990, he was an Auxiliary Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, UNESP-FEIS, São Paulo State University, and became an Assistant Professor in September 1990. From December 1996 until December 1998, he was an Assistant Ph. D. Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering - DEE-FEIS-UNESP, Ilha Solteira (SP), Brazil, and became an Associate Professor in December 1998. Currently (since 2007), Dr. Canesin is a Full Professor (University Titular/Full Professor) at São Paulo State University-UNESP. He started the Power Electronics Laboratory- LEP, at the UNESP - São Paulo State University, Ilha Solteira (SP), Brazil, where he is currently a Full Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering - DEE-FEIS. He is a Research Engineer with CNPq (National Council of Technological and Scientific Development, in Brazil), and FAPESP (The State of São Paulo Research Foundation, in Brazil). Dr. Canesin is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, since 2003, and currently (since 2010) he is a member of the São Paulo State Council for Energetic Policies (CEPE). From Jan/2003 to Dec/2004 he was Editor of the The Brazilian Journal of Power Electronics, edited by SOBRAEP - Brazilian Power Electronics Society, where he is currently a member of Editorial Council. From Nov/2004 to Oct/2006, he was the President of SOBRAEP, the Brazilian Power Electronics Society, where he is currently a permanent member of Deliberative Council. His interests include power quality analysis and techniques, active power-factor correction techniques, high-power factor rectifiers, soft-switching techniques, dc-to-dc converters, dc-to-ac converters, switching-mode power supplies, solar/photovoltaic energy and eolic/wind energy applications, pure electrical vehicles, electronic fluorescent ballasts, and educational research in power electronics.
