Short Bio

I am a Senior Researcher at Nimbus Research Centre.

I obtained my PhD in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Trento, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Gian Pietro Picco and Dr. Amy Murphy. I was also a member of the D3S research group.

In 2002/2003 I have received a B.Sc./M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Faculty of Automation and Computer Science at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. From 2002 to 2010 I've been with the Computer Science Department at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.
