Teaching offers me a great opportunity to inspire. As a teacher, my goal is to enhance student learning as a life-changing experience. I hope my students will feel personally changed by their participation in the courses I am teaching.
When I was a student, a talented math teacher posed challenging problems in class. He encouraged me to strengthen my logical skills by solving complicated math problems. I participated in math competitions at the regional and national level every year and ranked in the top 10% contestants. I was accepted in the premier university in Romania - University of Bucharest - in the top 5% candidates.
I completed a 5-year undergraduate program in math and computer science in the most prestigious university in my native Romania - University of Bucharest- with the highest GPA in my graduating class of 120 computer science majors. I also completed a Master of Science in Computer Science at the University of Bucharest in 1999. I was working as a computer information systems instructor for several years in a gifted program in Bucharest, the capital of Romania.
I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2005. As a Ph.D. student at Louisiana State University, I was doing research image enhancement algorithms. I was also supervising undergraduate students in completing their projects/assignments in the computing labs.
I have been teaching various courses , including Discrete Math, Precalculus Algebra, Finite Math, C , MATLAB and Python Programming. I directed research projects in several computing areas . My research projects have been funded by the National Science Foundation and Department of Defense.
I would be willing to share my passion for math and science with my students. I have accumulated a rich teaching experience in the STEM fields.
