Hi! I’m Murilo Silva. I’m an Electrical/Electronics Engineer at C-CORE, working on hardware systems for radar applications. I have a Ph.D. and an M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Memorial University of Newfoundland, and a bachelor in Industrial Electrical Engineering by the Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia da Bahia (IFBA).
In my Ph.D. research, I investigated the effects of large ocean waves on the electromagnetic scattering for high-frequency radars. During my masters, I 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. In my free time I love listening to music, playing sports, and sometimes I try to play the guitar.
