Maria Gabriela Melo Silva, known as Gabi, received a BSc and MSc in Applied Mathematics from Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), Brasil. She received a second MSc in Geophysics from the Center for Wave Phenomena Consortium at the Colorado School of Mines.
Gabi’s current research interests are: microseismics, seismic interferometry and seismic imaging.
Gabi has a history of participating in extra-curricular and volunteer activities. This year she is the Graduate Committee Representative for the Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences Department (EAPS) and a member of the Graduate Student Council.
She has also been awarded an SEG Geoscientists Without Borders grant for the project: Risk assessment and advance warning for landslides in Brazil, 2011.
In her free time Gabi listens to Heavy metal music (\m/!). She also enjoys to watch movies, and certain TV series. When she reads for fun it is often a graphic novel.
