Olivier Rukundo is one of three Rwandans going with the Sakharov Prize nominee Mrs. Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza to Rwanda in January 2010.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Olivier returned to China three weeks later to complete his Doctor of Philosophy degree program[7] at Huazhong University of Science and Technology.[8][9][10][11]

Early life and career[edit]

Rukundo was born and raised Roman Catholic in Rwanda. He attended Kigali Institute of Science and Technology, earned a degree in electronics and telecommunication engineering (2005) and he was employed for 18 months at Société Interbancaire de Monétique et de Télécompensation au Rwanda before moving on to Huazhong University of Science and Technology for his master's and PhD degrees in electronics and information engineering with a specialization in communication and information systems (2007 - 2012).[12] Dr Rukundo joined the University of Pretoria, Tilburg University and Ghent University, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively.[13][14][15] His research interests to date include image processing and optimization. Dr. Rukundo served as a reviewer for several journals,[16][17][18] including the SPIE Journal of Electronic Imaging.[19]

Personal life[edit]

In an August 11, 1997 secretive night-time military operation, Gabon returned Olivier Rukundo to his homeland forcedly. Olivier fled to Gabon in June 1997 after trekking for 6 months across the equatorial forest of the Democratic Republic of Congo (former Zaire) and later fleeing fierce fighting in Brazzaville.[20]
