Short Bio

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.

Before Digital Catapult, I was a lecturer at the Computer Science Department at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and a senior researcher at Nimbus Research Centre at Cork Institute of Technology, Ireland.
