Born: 1965

Interests: Magnetorheological fluids, Piezoelectric materials, Comprehensive simulation and extensive design analysis, The structure and rheology of complex fluids

Currently I am studying the behavior of magnetorheological fluids under shear and valve flow modes. I am developing a 3D model to simulate the microstructure formation inside the fluid under dynamic conditions.

In January, 1999 I completed my doctorate at "Gh. Asachi" Technical University of Iasi. The subject of the doctoral thesis was "Stress concentrations in cylindrical vessels with nozzles. Analytical, numerical and experimental investigation."
