Profile

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Bucharest (FMI-UNIBUC). I am part of the Logic and Security Group.

I also part of the Runtime Verification team, working on formal verification of smart contracts.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (2007) from FMI-UNIBUC, University of Bucharest, a Master's Degree in Theoretical Computer Science (2009) from the Mathematical Institute of the Romanian Academy, and a Doctorate in Mathematics (2013) from FMI-UNIBUC. Please check my PhD Thesis or its Abstract.

My research interests and expertise span across the field of non-classical logics, especially many-valued logics. I am interested in first-order and modal calculi, automated reasoning and algebraic semantics for non-classical logics, and formal verification.

Please check my CV for more details and my profiles at Google Scholar and DBLP.

New! We are organizing ManyVal 2019 at the University of Bucharest.
