Cercetare / Research

Interesele mele de cercetare sunt determinate de următoarele arii de studiu: programare orientată pe obiecte, ingineria sistemelor software, reţele de calculatoare, algoritmi şi structuri de date, bioinformatică şi reţele / sisteme complexe, atât biologice cât şi nebiologice.

My research interests are centred towards the following topics: object oriented programming, software systems engineering, computer networks, algorithms and data structures, bioinformatics and complex networks and systems, both biological and non-biological.

Sunt membru în consiliul editorial al revistei “International Journal on Advances in Life Sciences”. De asemenea, sunt „evaluator exceptional” pentru Elsevier si „Journal of Network and Computer Applications”. / I am member of the editorial committee for the “International Journal on Advances in Life Sciences”. I am also an „Outstanding Reviewer for Elsevier” and the „Journal of Network and Computer Applications”.

Am fost până acum membru în comitetul ştiinţific care a organizat patru conferinţe IEEE – (IEEE BIOTECHNO 2008, BIOTECHNO 2011, BIOTECHNO 2012, BIOTECHNO 2013). De asemenea, am fost “Session chair” pentru una dintre aceste patru conferinţe, BIOTECHNO 2008. / I have been part of the Scientific Program Committee that has organized four IEEE Conferences – (IEEE BIOTECHNO 2008, BIOTECHNO 2011, BIOTECHNO 2012, BIOTECHNO 2013). I have also acted as Session Chair for one of these conferences, BIOTECHNO 2008.
