About me

 

I have graduated in 2007 the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology of University ‘Politehnica’ Bucharest, receiving a diploma in Information Engineering (Applied Electronics). In 2011 I have received my PhD in Applied Electronics from the same university, after defending my PhD thesis entitled “Image processing and computer vision techniques for enhancing the visualization of confocal scanning laser microscopy data”.  Currently I am conducting my work as Principal Investigator within the Faculty of Applied Science of University Politehnica of Bucharest, my research activities taking place at the Center for Microscopy-Microanalysis and Information Processing.

 

Research Interests:
My main research interests revolve around scanning laser and scanning probe microscopies, with special emphasis on connected image processing and computer vision applications. The main research directions that I follow are :
  • Scanning Laser and Scanning Probe Microscopies (CSLM, TPEF, SHG, FLIM, ASNOM, AFM, MFM)
  • Correlative Microscopy – Nanoscopy approaches
  • Image processing, image fusion and computer vision techniques for 2D, 3D and 4D data sets collected using optical  microscopy and nanoscopy techniques
  • Transfer of existing image processing, image fusion and computer vision techniques developed for natural images to the realm of optical microscopy and nanoscopy
  • Analysis and understanding of microscopy and nanoscopy data
  • Artificial intelligence for automated data analysis
  • Development of novel image metrology methods and new image quality metrics
  • Biophotonics (disease diagnostics using light/tissue interactions)
  • Development of novel microscopy equipment and systems
  • Development of new sample characterization protocols that optimize sample visualization
  • Applied physics (optoelectronics, optics, photonics, surface science)
  • Biomedical engineering (tissue characterization and diseases diagnostics using combined light microscopy/nanoscopy approaches).
  • Characterization and synthesis of advanced materials (biomaterials, metamaterials)
  • Cellular and Molecular Biology
  • Label-based and label-free virtual histopahtology.
