Current Position

Department of Automatic Control and Computers
University Politehnica of Bucharest

Postdoc involved in two research projects. I am also teaching "Numerical Methods", "Parallel and distributed processing of data and knowledge", and "Modelling and Simulation".

Sparse representations in signal processing
IDEI 2011 project, January 2014 - Present

Researching dictionary learning for compressed sensing applications with a focus on parallel GPU implementations.

Set-theoretic approaches for fault tolerant control of complex systems
TE 2015 project, September 2015 - Present

Investigating sensor placement using sparse representations and dictionary learning with applications in water distribution networks.
