About me

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. Before coming to Toronto, I was a Milnor Lecturer at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences at Stony Brook University from 2013 to 2017. 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 fall I am teaching MAT334: Complex Variables at the University of Toronto (UTM campus). Next semester I will teach MAT302: Introduction to Algebraic Cryptography.

At Stony Brook I taught MAT 331 (Spring 2017, Fall 2015), an introductory course about the interplay between mathematics and computer science. To see a list of courses that I have taught in the past at Cornell University and Stony Brook University select "Teaching" from the top menu.

Other events

I am co-organizer for the Dynamics Seminar at the University of Toronto.
I organized a Special Session on "Holomorphic Dynamics" at the AMS Sectional Meeting at Stony Brook University.
During my PhD, I also organized the Dynamics Seminar at Cornell University.
