CS I Ph.D., mathematician

Date and place of birth: November 30, 1950, Giurgiu

Education : Faculty of Physics, University of Bucharest (1969-1970); Faculty of Physics, St. Petersburg State University, Russia (1970-1975), majoring in theoretical physics; doctor of physics with the thesis Contributions to the study of open quantum systems (1990).

Professional activity : physics teacher at High School no. 6, Bucharest (1975-1979); physicist (1979-1990), scientific researcher (CS) (1990-1993), CS III (1993-1996), CS II (1996-2008), CS I (since 2008), Department of Theoretical Physics, National Institute of Physics and Horia Hulubei Nuclear Engineering (IFIN-HH), Bucharest-Magurele. Associate Professor, PhD supervisor, Faculty of Physics, University of Bucharest (since 2009). Head of the Department of Theoretical Physics, IFIN-HH (since 2009).

Scientific activity : DAAD Research Fellowship in Germany (1992, 1999, 2002). Research internships at IUCN Dubna, Russia (1981-1983, 1985, 1990, 1994); Giessen University, Germany (1989, 1991, 1995-1998, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2006). Scientific seminars abroad: Institute of Theoretical Physics, Giessen University, Germany; Theoretical Physics Laboratory, IUCN Dubna, Russia; Imperial College, London, England; ICTP Trieste, Italy. Project Director for CERES-3/16 Projects (2003-2005), CERES-4/158 (2004-2006), CEEX-68 Project (2005-2008), IDEI-497 Project (2009-2011), PN Core Project -09370102 (2009-2011) of the Department of Theoretical Physics, IFIN-HH. Grant Manager for two MEC grants , Physics Section and Information Physics Section (1999-2001).

Teaching activity : courses and seminars in theoretical physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Physics, University of Bucharest (1984-1986, 1996-2000).

Fields of study : theoretical physics – quantum dissipation and applications in atomic and nuclear physics and quantum optics; open quantum systems; dissipative tunneling in open quantum systems; quantum deformation in open systems; quantum decoherence and the transition from quantum physics to classical physics; quantum entanglement; quantum information theory.

Publications : author of about 80 scientific papers, of which 30 are ISI publications (reviewed in Mathematical Reviews (27), Zentralblatt für Mathematik (13), Spiers database – hep-th (6)). The published scientific papers have imposed and consolidated new distinct research directions in IFIN-HH: the study of dissipative quantum phenomena in the theory of open systems based on quantum dynamic semigroups; applying the theory of open quantum systems in the study of quantum decoherence and the transition from quantum to classical behavior; the study of the dynamics of quantum entanglement (quantum correlations) in open quantum systems and its role in the processing and transmission of quantum information.

Affiliations : member of the American Mathematical Society , International Mathematical Union, International Society of Open Systems and Information Dynamics, Romanian Physics Society , Horia Hulubei Foundation. Referent of the magazine (Math. Reviews, USA, since 2000). Specialist in scientific journals (ISI listed): (Phys. Lett. A), (J. Phys. A: Math. Theor.), (J. Phys. B: Atomic), (Mol.), (Optical Phys.), (J. Phys. G: Nucl. Part. Phys. ), (Int. J. Theor. Phys.), (New J. Phys., Phys. Scripta), (Phys. Rev. B), (Rom. J. Phys. Member of the Advisory Board of Central – European Workshop on Quantum Optics, Turku, Finland, 2009).

Awards: Ştefan Procopiu Prize for Physics of the Romanian Academy (1990).

International recognition : over 300 citations in specialized scientific publications (mostly in ISI-listed journals and the rest in monographs, doctoral theses, proceedings of international conferences, etc.).
