NTC Chapters & Regional Activities Committee Announces New Coordinator


The IEEE NTC Chapters & Regional Activities Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Murilo A. Romero to the Chapter’s committee as the new Region-9 Coordinator.

Murilo A. Romero was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1965. He received the electrical engineering and the M.S. degrees in 1988 and 1991, both from the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 1995, he received the Ph.D. degree from Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA. After his return to Brazil in 1995, he joined the University of Sao Paulo, at Sao Carlos, as a faculty member. At the University of Sao Paulo (USP), the largest and best ranked Brazilian university, he became an Associate Professor in 2001 and a Full Professor in 2008.
He was then Head of the Electrical Engineering Department at EESC-USP (from 2009-2013) and has also served as chair of the Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Committee of the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq, from 2011-2013). More recently, from 2014-2018, he was the Head of the Electrical Engineering area at CAPES, an agency of the Brazilian government, established to regulate and carry out quality control of graduate studies in Brazil (a process similar to the British REF or the Italian VQR).

His research interests span over a large variety of topics in semiconductor devices, optical communications and microwave-photonics. Samples of his research work can be found in more than 50 journal papers, including manuscripts at IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics, IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, IEEE Sensors and IEEE Access, among others in top-ranked journals by other publishers.

He has served as editor in chief of the Scopus indexed Journal of Microwaves, Optoelectronics and Electromagnetics Applications, as well as served in a variety of international conference TPCs. He is now Associate Editor for Terahertz and Microwave Photonics for the newly launched journal Frontiers in Photonics.
