I hold a PhD degree in Computer Science (Software Engineering) from the Faculty of Computer Science at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy (South Tyrol). I defended my thesis in March 2009. The main content of the thesis is available in a published book.
I have a Master (MSc.) degree in Data Mining from Ecole Polytechnique de Nantes, France. I defended my thesis in July 2005 and I was ranked 3rd out of 29 graduates.
I have an Engineer (BSc.) degree in Computer Science from the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, Politehnica University of Bucharest. The degree was a 5-years degree and I defended my thesis in September 2005.
I completed the course for teachers offered by the Department for Training of Didactic Personnel of the Politehnica University of Bucharest.
I attended several summer schools on computer science topics, between 2006 and 2008.
In 2011 I started working on my own as an independent researcher and tutor.
I served as a Program committee member for the ESEC/FSE 2011 New Ideas Track and for the European Agent Systems Summer School (in 2009 and 2010). I also served as an external reviewer for several conferences on Software Engineering.
I worked as a researcher at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and, previous to that, as a software engineer at Nuxeo Romania.
