My curiosity and passion for science started at an early age and lead me to study physics and engineering. Pursuing the aim to become a researcher, I graduated in year 2013, from Babeș -Bolyai University (Cluj-Napoca, Romania) and got a Bachelor’s degree in Technological Physics.

During my bachelor years, as a member of the Physics College, I began working on a research topic together with a team of PhD students. This experience gave me the chance to develop a strong background and interest in computational physics.

My interest in solid state physics, and the attended engineering classes made me curious to find out more about the applied field of physics. This is how I decided to apply for the Erasmus Mundus TRIBOS Joint Master Programme.  Attending the Programme gave me the opportunity to study Tribology at three different European Universities, namely Leeds (UK), Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Luleå (Sweden).

Taking part in EM TRIBOS MSc Programme gave me a strong background in tribology, and also taught me how to work in an international environment.  I finished my master thesis at Luleå University of Technology, where my work focused on an experimental work in which I studied the frictional and wear performance of newly developed engine main bearings.

After having finished my MSc., I started working as a junior scientist at AC2T research GmbH in Wiener Neustadt, where my work is now focused on multiscale computational tribology.
