I am lector universitar in the Department of Mathematics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Bucharest. Since 2021 I am habilitated to advise Ph.D. students and I am a member of the Doctoral School in Mathematics at the University of Bucharest.

I did my undergraduate studies (B.Sc. 2002) in Maths at the University of Iasi, Romania. Later on I got a Masters degree from Iasi, and another one from SNSB-Bucharest (2004). I got my Ph.D. in Maths in 2009 from the University of Bucharest, under the supervision of Prof. Dorin Popescu. During the preparation of the thesis, in 2006-2008, I benefitted from a Fulbright Fellowship at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, where I worked with Prof. Vic Reiner. Before joining the University of Bucharest in Oct 2009, I worked as an assistant researcher at IMAR, the "Simion Stoilow" Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy.
Here's a more detailed CV [pdf].

I am in the editorial board of Analele stiintifice ale Universitatii "Al. I. Cuza" din Iasi. Matematica (Serie noua)/Annals of the "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University of Iasi (New Series). Mathematics.

My teaching schedule is available online.

Some notes

Commutative Algebra Seminar
I attend the weekly Commutative Algebra Seminar which is run jointly by IMAR and FMI. It meets usually during the academic year on Tuesdays, 12-14, room 120, at the University building. Feel free to stop by!
The archive of the talks is found here.

Summer Schools
There was a One Day Workshop on Commutative Algebra and Related Fields on 1 September 2020, hosted online on Webex by Ovidius University of Constanta. Co-organized by Viviana Ene and myself.

An important event that our group organizes yearly is the National School on Algebra.
The next one, the 28th edition, was supposed to take place 8-12 June 2020, in Bucharest, with the topic Homological trends in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. It will be rescheduled when life gets back to normal.
The 27th edition took place 20-24 May 2019, in Bucharest, with the topic Graded modules over polynomial rings with applications to free divisors.
The 26th edition took place 27-31 August 2018, in Constanta, with the title Combinatorial structures in algebra and geometry.
The 25th edition took place 4-8 September 2017, in Bucharest, with the title The regularity of the invariant National School on Algebra, a generic edition.

The 2016 meeting was organized under the patronship of the European Mathematical Society and with support from the Foundation Compositio Mathematica : EMS Summer School on Multigraded Algebra and Applications in Moieciu de Sus, Romania, 17-24 August 2016. Here are the slides for some of the talks in Moieciu.
