About me

I am currently a Milnor Lecturer at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences at Stony Brook University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Cornell University in 2013, under the supervision of John H. Hubbard. I also have a M.S. in Computer Science from Cornell University and a M.S. in Mathematics from Scoala Normala Superioara, Bucharest.

I got my B.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the University of Bucharest, and my B.Eng. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest.

Research Interests

Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory, Complex Analysis in one or several variables,
Computer Science especially Databases and Large Scale Architecture Systems.

For a more detailed description of my research interests, please take a look at my research page.


This spring I am teaching MAT 331, an introductory course about the interplay between mathematics and computer science. Click here for the old version of this course from Fall 2015. Last fall I taught MAT 303, an introductory course in ordinary differential equations and their applications. To see a list of courses that I have taught in the past at Cornell University and Stony Brook University please click here or select "Teaching" from the top menu.

Other events

I organized a Special Session on "Holomorphic Dynamics" at the AMS Sectional Meeting at Stony Brook University, March 19–20, 2016.
