I was born in
Resita (the capital town of the Caras-Severin county), but I spent
most of my childhood at the countryside – in Vermeş. I am currently
working as an lecturer at the Department of Biology-Chemistry, within the
Faculty of Chemistry, Biology, Geography of the West University
of Timisoara. I teach Invertebrate Zoology
courses and seminars.
I obtained my
B.Sc. degree, as well as my M.Sc. degree, at the faculty where I am
currently teaching. In 2010 I obtained my Ph.D. degree at the
Babes-Boliay University of Cluj-Napoca and the title of my thesis
was: “The study of malacostracean communities (Crustacea:
Malacostraca) in the Anina Mountains”, coordinated by Professor
Doctor Nicolae Tomescu.
My area of interest is the crayfish. In my research I try to contribute, as much as I possibly can, to the in-depth knowledge of crayfish in Romania (and more). I am an advocate of precise specializations, while nevertheless a proponent of interdisciplinary research.
