I am currently employed by Constellation Energy Group in Baltimore. I have been with the company since 2002, in various positions.
I made complete use of six years to get a PhD from the Physics Department of University of Maryland, College Park. My advisor was Victor Yakovenko. This was a very happy period of my life. I had the freedom and time to study any subject that interested me.
Before that, I studied Physics in Timisoara, Romania for five years. It was right after the Communist regime fell so the curriculum became boldly experimental, with a bunch of enthusiastic young lecturers.
