I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo. My research interests are in the areas of design automation of VLSI and FPGA circuits, design methodologies for systems-on-chip, analysis and optimization of power systems, and reconfigurable and parallel computing. I received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 2004 and the M.Sc. (signal processing) and B.S. (microelectronics) degrees from the Technical University "Gh. Asachi" of Iasi, Romania. Prior to joining SUNY at Buffalo, from 2008 to 2012, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, North Dakota State University. Previously, from 2004 to 2008, I worked for Magma Design Automation, San Jose CA, where I received the outstanding technical contribution award in 2007. During the Summer of 2001, I worked on analog circuit synthesis and layout at NeoLinear Inc., Pittsburgh PA. During 1996-1997, I was an Erasmus graduate student at the University of Patras, Greece. I am a member of ACM, SIGDA, IEEE, and ASEE.
