    About me...

    I am an assistant and a Ph.D. student in the Distributed Information Systems Laboratory at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland. My research interests include peer data management systems, semantic interoperability in large-scale systems and knowledge extraction from social collaborative platforms. I obtained a M.Sc. in Computer Science (2005) from EPFL after graduating with a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science (2004) from the Politechnica University of Timisoara, Romania.
