Thalita Nazaré | Maynooth University
Supported by HEAnet
Thalita graduated from the Federal University of São João del-Rei (UFSJ), Brazil, with a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, focusing on control and modelling of non-linear and chaotic systems. In 2021 she worked as a temporary lecturer at the Electrical Engineering Department at UFSJ. Thalita was awarded the Women in STEM (WISH) Hume Fellow Scholarship in 2022, and joined COER to commence her PhD studies - focusing on control co-design for wave energy converters and offshore hybrid platforms. She is currently Region 8 - UK and Ireland’s Section Lead of the IEEEXtreme 17.0, and engineering representative at the Women in STEM Society MU. Her research interests include: green algorithm; chaotic systems; control and modelling systems; computer arithmetic and systems identification.
Thalita's current research is focused on reducing the carbon footprint in computer simulations, and also on how to harness wave energy to control and stabilise a floating offshore wind turbine platform.
