I was born in Constanta, a town near the Black Sea in Romania. I graduated simultaneously in Chemical Engineering and Business Administration in Bucharest and I am currently enrolled in the international MSc. of Advanced Materials and Processes in Erlangen, Germany. Besides my studies I conducted two research projects and two internships in fields ranging from nanotechnology, biomaterials, chemistry and biophysics. I am inclined towards applying my knowledge for practical purposes to create devices that will improve human life. This year I will start my Phd. in the Nano Science & Technology Doctoral Training Centre in Cambridge. I am very excited to apply my knowledge, exploit my curiosity and improve my skill skills in an interdisciplinary environment in the field of nanosciences. My dream is to lead my own research group, working in collaboration with companies and hospitals to develop lab-on-a-chip devices for low cost diagnosis and tissue engineering applications.
