About me

After finishing my undergraduate degree in Romania, I have moved to the US for my graduate and post-doctoral studies which took me to Texas, Indiana, and Virginia. I have started my job here in Oregon in 2011.

I specialize in partial differential equations and fluid dynamics. In particular, I am interested in the mathematical theory of Navier-Stokes and Euler equations and its connection to turbulence. My research is partially supported by the NSF.

I usually teach courses in the area of Analysis, but I also enjoy teaching outside my research interests.

This term I am teaching MTH254H - Vector Calculus I and MTH481/581 - Applied Ordinary Differential Equations.

I am one of the graduate advisors, and if you are interested in our graduate program do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

I also help organize Math Colloquia. Prospective colloquium speakers may find this visitor information useful.
