EDUCATION:
- l0 Oct 1998 - All-But-Disertation in the PhD program in Mathematics at Bryn Mawr College. Expected graduation date: May 2000.
- 18 May 1997 - Master Degree in Mathematics from Bryn Mawr College. MA paper: Wavelets, Splines and Multiresolution Analysis. The paper focuses on the image compression using wavelets and multiresolution analysis. (postscript,756k)
- l July 1995 - Master Degree in Computer Science from POLITEHNICA University of Bucharest in the fields: Operating Systems, Compilers and Data Bases. My dissertation was a client-server system based on the X11 graphic library, called "Interactive Graphic Data Analyser". The server captures and process data from different clients allowing the user to choose between several modes of representation (pie charts, histogram, graphs, etc). It provides a protocol to communicate with the clients.
