Short Bio

I completed my doctoral studies in 2011 under the supervision of Alexander Kurz. Before coming to Leicester I read Mathematics at the University of Bucharest.

I am interested in Coalgebraic Logics, Nominal Sets, Stone type dualities and applications of algebraic and topological methods in Computer Science.

PhD Thesis

I defended my PhD thesis Investigations into Algebra and Topology over Nominal Sets in November 2011. (.pdf)


I have been a PC memeber of the 11th International Workshop on Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science and 5th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science.


During the spring term 2011/2012 I will supervise individual MSc projects (campus access only: CO7201 ) and second year group software engineering projects (campus access only: CO2015 ).
