Born: 1973

Interests: child development, research methodology

Cristian began his career as a paediatrician; after graduating from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Carol Davila" in Romania, he began a residency in Paediatrics on which he stayed for 2 years. He then decided to pursue a career in a more social-science-oriented field, in which he could still follow his main interest, studying and understanding children. He joined the Graduate Programme at the Human Development and Family Study department, Oregon State University, USA, where he obtained a MSc and then a PhD degree, focusing on child development and children with special needs, with a doctoral dissertation titled "Applying theories of capital to understand parent involvement at school as a component of family-school interaction : the special case of children with special needs"
Besides the substantive topic, he got rigorous training in research methodology, especially quantitative and advanced statistical modelling. He then joined the paediatric respiratory epidemiology research team at the Institute for Social and Preventive Medicine at University of Bern,
