About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Max Planck Institute in the team of Gerhard Weikum.
I received my Ph.D. from Télécom ParisTech University and my advisor was Mauro Sozio.
My research interests lie in the area of data mining, with a focus on graph mining and scalable algorithms. Previously I attended the Parisian Master of Research in Computer Science, while being in the Paris Graduate School of Mathematics program. I completed my bachelor in Computer Science, at the University of Bucharest. I was a software engineer at Bitdefender, a security software company.
You can find more information on my website.
