  • In September 2001, I received the Engineer title graduating from the University of Politehnica Bucharest - Romania, Department of Automatic Control and Computer Science, with a major in automatic control and industrial computer science.

  • In January 2005, I received a University of Victoria Fellowship and was admitted in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Victoria, as a full-time graduate student in a Master of Applied Science program working under supervision of Dr. Wu-Sheng Lu.

  • In April 2007, I completed the M.A.Sc. program with the thesis on Adaptive Strategies and Optimization Techniques for JPEG-Based Low Bit-Rate Image Coding.

  • From May 2007 to August 2010, I have completed a Ph.D. program in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Victoria working under supervision of Dr. Wu-Sheng Lu.

  • My Ph.D. dissertation is on Enhancement and Extensions of Principal Component Analysis for Face Recognition.

  • During the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. studies I have worked in our department as a Teaching Assistant, Marker and sessional Course Instructor for undergraduate courses.
