Short bio

I am currently a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems working with Krishna Gummadi.

Prior to this I obtained my PhD in 2014 and my Master degree in 2010 from the Pierre et Marie Curie University in Paris. During my PhD I worked under the supervision of Renata Teixeira. I am originally from Romania, from where I obtained an Engineer diploma in Computer Science from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca in 2008.

During my PhD, I had the opportunity to work with wonderful researchers during my internships at ICSI Berkeley, Intel Berkeley and MPI-SWS.

The focus of my research turns around the security and privacy of individuals online. My research is motivated by the fact that more and more of our daily activities happen online and it is becoming increasingly hard to measure and control the online image we leave behind. My approach is to analyze existing systems trough data collection and data mining and propose solutions to better manage user identities online.
