Born: 1967

Interests: radionuclides, management, disposal, migration, safety assessment, site

Research activity:

A. Romanian R&D Radioactive Waste Management Program:

1. Development of technologies for conditioning of spent resins (contaminated with 137Cs, 134Cs, 60Co, 58Co, 57Co, 54Mn, 14C) generated from operation of Cernavoda NPP Unit 1 and of the spent resins resulted from the treatment of liquid waste:
- The establishing of conditioning technological processes of ion-exchange resins contaminated with C-14
- Conceiving, design and building of a pilot plant for conditioning of spent resins
- Immobilisation of spent resins in bitumen or/and cement and final products characterization

2. The programme on the safety analysis linked to the geological disposal of radioactive wastes:
The study of radionuclide migration in unsaturated soils

B. Projects within National Programmee for Development, Research & Innovation (MENER, CERES, CEEX):

- Participation in the characterization of geological medium of repository for low and intermediate radioactive waste from Cernavoda NPP and radionuclide migration modelling
- Modelling of radionuclide transfer process: Theoretical aspects for geochemical modelling of radionuclide transport (evaluation concept of radionuclide dissolving)
- Analitical methods for characterization and identification of radioactive waste
- Research studies for utilization of calixaren compounds in separation of metallic cations from radioactive waste

C. Phare Programmee: Development of the Safety Analysis Report (PSAR) for the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Repository Baita Bihor
