Dr. Carolina Brum Medeiros is a researcher and an engineer. She is the founder and CTO of Fliprl, and a research affiliate of the IDMIL Lab in Montreal/Canada, and the Computer Music Group in Sao Paulo/Brazil. She is currently assigned as an algorithms engineer on the Signal Processing and Gesture Recognition team of Project Soli at Google ATAP. She received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering, and a M.S. degree in mechanical engineering 2009 from the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brazil, and a Ph.D. degree with the Music Technology Program at McGill University in 2015. Her PhD research was dedicated to improve sensing of human input signals, under the supervision of Prof. Marcelo Wanderley (McGill). Her primary research is about sensing and sensor fusion for human motion analysis. Her research aims to highlight the benefits of applying signal processing techniques for systems whose models are hard to define, or for cases where the ground truth is unknown. She collaborated with Prof. Joseph Paradiso (MIT Media Lab) developing data fusion techniques for sensor and motion capture data of baseball pitching. As an engineer and an active person, she is passionate about testing, evaluating, and producing new sensing techniques for motion analysis, posture, and movement awareness.
A balanced mix between a trouble maker and a problem solver
“I’m like a thin rod, any brise sags it, no sword cuts it” (Maria Bethania)
beauty is at the details | hardware is sculpture
she keeps walking through the fields where she can experience engineering, art, knowledge and discovery.
