Professional experience

In February 2017 I became associate professor * in the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty at "Babeş-Bolyai" University.

In October 2007 I became lecturer in the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty at "Babeş-Bolyai" University.

From February 2004, I returned to the Chair of Information Systems of the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty at "Babeş-Bolyai" University.

In February 2003 I became assistant professor in the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty at "Babeş-Bolyai" University.

Between October 2000 and September 2006, I was a PhD student at Dublin City University, where I investigated QoS routing using agile mobiles in MPLS networks. The actual research was done within the Switching and Systems Laboratory of the Electronic Engineering School at Dublin City University, from October 2003 to December 2003. The writing of the thesis was done in Romania (reason why it took longer than expected) from July 2004 to July 2006. My VIVA* took place on 7th September 2006, the graduation ceremony taking place on 7th November 2006.

Between September 1999 and February 2003, I was teaching assistant in the Chair of Information Systems of the Computer Science Department of the Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty at "Babeş-Bolyai" University.

In October 1997 I started to work as a volunteer at the "Babeş-Bolyai" University's Communications Center until February 1999, when I became an employee of this center as webmaster and webdesigner.

Programming Experience

  • PULSE (a Php Utility used in Laboratories for Student Evaluation)
    A web-based application in order to facilitate "anytime, any place, any pace" access to learning content and evaluation info (e.g. individual tasks, marks, attendance stats). For more details about this instrument, please consult my 8th and the 9th international conference.
  • SINE (System with Interactive ackNowledgement and Evaluation of students work during laboratory sessions)
    A Linux-based instrument with a web-interface that evaluates the students in an interactive mode with the help of both students and the teacher. For more details about this instruent, please consult my 2nd journal paper and my 1st romanian conference.
  • WinNet
    A Linux-based application for network simulations. It uses GT-ITM to generate random network topologies based on which there can be created simulations by using NS and/or virtual network representation, using WAVE, used to analyze the network topology along with the random single or multiple metrics associated with network links. This instrument is presented in detail in my 5th international conference.
  • Lines
    The 'Lines' game implemented in JavaScript. This implementation was one of the applications presented for my Bachelor thesis. It was also used in the entertainment area of the student's page (http://scs.ubbcluj.ro/) (1997-2000).
  • NOTE
    An CGI application written for Distance Learning students. They can see their grades on a web page using a password and a login name. (http://math.ubbcluj.ro/~sanda) (2000).
  • Various sites
    They involved programming in (X)HTML, XML, CSS, JavaScript, CGI, PHP, MySQL and JQuery. My Portfolio contains more details about the most recent websites that I designed.
    • PULSE ( 2008-2009, 2010- )
    • A comercial site ( 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009- ) with administrative part ( 2007-2009 )
    • A photo site ( 2004-2008, 2008-2009, 2009- )
    • My Home Page (RO) (1997-1999, 1999-2000, 2000-2004, 2003-2004, 2004-2009, 2010, 2010- )
    • My Home Page (IE) (2000-2004)
    • My Student Page (IE) (2000-2002)
    • A SETI page for the UBB team (2002)

    • BroadBand Switching and Systems Laboratory (2000-2004)
    • Communication Center web page (1999-2000, 2000-2001)
    • "Babeş-Bolyai" University web page ( 1998-1999)
    • A web page for Computer Science Students. It included JavaScript and CGI programming. (1997-2000)
