Born: 1955

Interests: Geology, Mineralogy, Ore deposite, Environmental geology, Pedology

From the more special results I have obtained in my scientific research activity I would like to mention the discovery of two new mineral components: umaned minerals - a new lead and bismuth sulphotelur (Ditrau) and a Sb telur (Stanija). I have also published articles in which I have described for the first time on the territory of Romania the following minerals: lillianite (Romanian Journal of Mineralogy vol. 75) and ullmanite (The Annals of the Bucharest University XL - XLI), freibergite (The Annals of the Bucharest University), heteromorfite (Geologica Carpatica). I have described over 8 new mineral occurrences on the territory of Romania: freibergite, silver tetrahedrite, lillianite, ullmanite, heteromorfite, copper-pavonite, veenite, twinnite; new bismuth minerals occurrences for the Baia Mare zone: pekoite, krupkaite, gladite, cosalite, lillianite, gustavite, vikingite, heyrovkyite; new occurrences for Herja ore deposit: Jordanite, andorite, fullopite, plagionite, pirargirite-proustite, ilvaite.
