Professional Experience :

Scientific & Didactic Activity:

I published over 50 scientific papers in journals and conferences in the fields of electrical engineering, power systems, software simulations, etc. Below it is given a short selective list of my published papers (click here for my List of Publications):

In 2003 I published in Matrix Rom Publishing House (Bucharest) a monographic scientific book focused on fault-current in power systems, entitled (in Romanian / in English): "Scurtcircuitul monofazat in retelele electrice" / "Ground Fault in Power Systems ", ISBN 973-685-647-X - please see

Also I published a text-book dedicated to students in electrical engineering domain, entitled "Producerea, transportul si distributia energiei electrice" / "Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution", ISBN 978-973-755-449-9, Matrix Rom, Bucharest, 2009 - see

I successfully developed a Research Grant as a Project Manager, obtained through national competition, entitled (in Romanian) "Extinderea paradigmei analizei scurtcircuitelor monofazate in retelele electrice de inalta tensiune prin metode clasice si euristice" (in English) "Classical and heuristic methods for enlarging the ground fault analysis paradigm in power systems" (financed by The National Research Council CNCSIS, during the period 2009-2011). Here is the grant's first year report (2009, in Romanian); Here is the grant's second year report (2010, in Romanian); The papers published during the grant's second year (2010)

Award for Valuable Scientific Research Activity from "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu / Engineering School (2014, Q1 Clarivate Analytics Paper) and another Award for Valuable Scientific Research (2018, Q2 Clarivate Analytics Paper); Honorary Diploma from University of Ploiesti (2016)

UEFISCDI Award for a Q2 Clarivate Analytics published paper (2018)
