I come from the Eindhoven University of Technology, with which I have been affiliated for 5 years, working in the area of Adaptive Hypermedia, and especially authoring thereof, as well as Semantic Web technology. Previously, I have been affiliated with the University of Electro-Communications, for 6 years, where I was working on Neural Networks and Artificial Intelligence technologies applied in Education and Distance Learning. I started my academic career at the University Politehnica of Bucharest, where I was working on parallelization of Neural Networks. Strange as it may seem, all these subjects are related, they still interest me, and I am happy to continue working on integrating them.

For Warwick students: if you want to perform a project in your third year, or a group project in your fourth year, or a Master project during your Taught Master, related to one of my projects (currently, GRAPPLE and ALS, see below)send me an email. To give you some ideas, here are some sample projects .

Tracks, Workshops organized:

Research & Projects, chronologically:

PhD thesis ( I did my thesis in Japan, at the University of Electro-Communications in Toyko, Graduate School of Information Systems Laboratory of AI & Knowledge Computing, under the supervision of professor Toshio Okamoto.

Older research:Stock Exchange Forecasting with the help of Neural Networks; Generalities
