Degrees and Experience
  • 2015: Joint PhD Degree in Computer Science from University Politehnica of Bucharest and Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne
    • Thesis subject: Multi-Agent Based Context Management Middleware In Support of Ambient Intelligence Applications.
    • The goal of the thesis is the implementation of a middleware which allows to design and program context-aware ambient intelligence applications. Focus of the middleware lies on expressiveness in modeling and reasoning, as well as flexibility in configuration and deployment. The developed system employs techniques stemming from the semantic web and multi-agent systems domains.
  •  2011: M.Sc. Degree in Artificial Intelligence, University Politehnica of Bucharest
    • Thesis subject: Agile Governance in an Ambient Intelligence Environment.
    • Development of a mechanism for coordinated and adaptive behavior of multi-agent organizations managing an ambient intelligence environment. Integration of the mechanism within the JaCaMo multi-agent oriented programming framework.
  • 2009: B.Sc. Degree in Computer Science, University Politehnica of Bucharest
  • Technical coordinator in the CAMI and CONSERT research projects
  • Member of the Romanian Association for Artificial Intelligence (ARIA) since 2012
  • Coordinating member of the ARIA projects implementation team since 2015
  • Member in the organizing committee of the AI-MAS Winter Olympics 2012 and 2013 events
