Life until now

I received my B. Sc.(engineering) degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from National Polytecnic Institute of Bucharest UPB, in 1998, and Ph. D. from INPT National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, France, in 2003.

I was born in Panciu where I started going to school. Then I went to high school in Focsani. I have never quit school since :)
