Sergio Melais

I was born and raised in Panama City, Panama. In 1999 I moved to the US to pursue advanced degrees (B.S, M.S, Ph.D.) in the field of Electrical Engineering from the University of South Florida in Tampa FL. I am a published and distinguished author of patents, journals and conference proceedings.

In my professional career I worked on satellite communication systems used by the US military for rescue missions, such as the Haiti’s earthquake of 2010. Currently, I work for the top software company in the world for virtual prototyping of electronic devices used in consumer technology, mobile, automotive and aerospace.

In my personal life, I have always had a strong passion for fitness. I started lifting weights when I was 15 years old and since then I have continued to work out routinely almost every day. During my years at the University, I had the fortune of training with athletes from various disciplines (e.g. football, track & field, rugby) from which I learned different approaches for building muscle.
