Hi! I’m Murilo Silva. I’m a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. I am currently researching the effects of large ocean waves on the electromagnetic scattering for high-frequency radars, and I have previously worked with inverse problems and machine learning applied to spectral and meteorological data related to the ocean environment. I’m also the Communications Officer of the IEEE Newfoundland and Labrador Section since October 2019.
I was born and raised in Salvador, Brazil, and moved to Canada in 2015 for my masters. In my free time I love listening to music, playing volleyball, and sometimes I try to play the guitar.
