Hello!! I’m Michelle and I’m from Brazil.
I am graduated in Electronics Engineering from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (2013, Brazil). I also attended the Specialization Course on Embedded Systems at Universidade de Pernambuco (2015, Brazil). When I was younger I got interested in the electronics field because I thought it was awesome the simple fact of turn on a switch and a light turns on! Electronics is like magic to me!! Today, I’m passionate about embedded systems and I really enjoy to participate in every phase of a project: hardware design, PCB design, soldering electronic components of a prototype, firmware development and testing the system.
During my graduation, I’ve done a scientific initiation in the laboratory of devices and nanostructures (LDN) where I worked with monitoring of the power grid via wireless instrumentation and I had the opportunity of participating with a paper in a educational congress, COBENGE 2009. I’ve also done an internship at the company FITec where I worked in a nobreak tester project and in a project of monitoring module of the power grid quality. My graduate work was a multimedia sound system with remote access interface on Android devices.
When I was at Universidade de Pernambuco, I’ve designed an Arduino-based electrocardiography (ECG) system and a dual-band embedded system capable of behaving as a node in a wireless sensor network.
I’ve done research in CALTECH LTDA about a portable equipment for quick diagnosis of dengue fever. I also worked in Tomus company with maintenance and development of hardware and documentation of truck tracking system.
I’ve lived in Berlin, Germany, for 3 years and as a hobby I’ve developed an automatic watering embedded system for water my plants with web application for connecting and persisting the sensor data.
Nowadays, I live in Dublin, Ireland, and I’ve created this space to talk about insights, projects and innovations in the field of embedded systems. I hope have a little fun around here!!! 😀
Enjoy it!!! 🙂
