Igor Dantas Miranda is an accomplished electrical engineer who earned his undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in the field from the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA). His academic journey extended to post-doctoral research at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. Born to an engineer and a mathematician, Miranda developed a passion for the exact sciences early leading him learn computer programming on his own during his teenage years. His scientific pursuits revolve around unlocking the potential of supersensors through the integration of multiple smaller sensors. Embracing his identity as a global African, Miranda dedicates his leisure time to mastering the Yoruba language. A native of Salvador, he shares his knowledge and expertise by teaching electrical and computer engineering at the Federal University of Recôncavo da Bahia.
Several emerging technological paradigms, such as the Internet of Things, telemedicine, and wearable devices, promise to transform the human experience in the near future. Many of these approaches will require sensors that match or even exceed human observational capabilities. These supersensors can be created by integrating multiple simple sensors, much like how telescopes were combined to capture the image of a black hole. While this technique offers promising results, its implementation requires substantial infrastructure and computational resources. Leveraging principles from mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering, the proposed project aims to explore methods of representing and processing signals from multiple sensors. This breakthrough could open doors to the development of compact, yet powerful sensing devices.
