I am a Senior Researcher, having major interests on surface water resources, hydrology models, flood assessment and GIS. I acquired over 10 years of experience in these fields in the Institute of Geography, Faculty of Geography ("Spiru Haret" University), and Faculty of Hydrotechnics (Technical University of Civil Engineering).

In present, I am the Head of G.I.S. Data Processing Laboratory from National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management (INHGA), preparing de GIS databases for hydrological studies (flood studies, analysis of catchments or rivers, topographic analysis, etc.), their integration in the hydrological databases, development of some research projects, etc.

During 2003-2004, I have been involved in the co-ordination and development of an UNESCO Project: "The elaboration of the graphic database of the Romanian hydrological network (Danube tributaries and main rivers belonging to Romania)" as a support for the project "Basin-wide water balance of the Danube river basin", in the framework of the International Hydrological Programme (IHP) UNESCO. In 2004, together with other experts from INHGA, provided consultancy services in connection with EuropeAid/114577/D/SV/RO - RO 0103.03-02 "Protection of wetlands of the Danube - a pilot project for Cama Dinu islets area", co-ordinated by Haskoning Nederland BV.

The PhD thesis (2007) had the title "The runoff and suspended load in Bend Subcharpatians", and it is based entirely on the applicability of GIS methods and techniques in hydrology. The spatial distribution of several physico-geographical factors and their analysis in GIS system, including spatial statistics, has allowed the development of new relationships between them and the different components of runoff and suspended load.
