Marilena Ferbinteanu is a permanent Associate Professor and Chemist in the Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Bucharest (UB), Bucharest, Romania, where she earned her Ph.D. degree, with a professional experience in the field of coordination and organometallic chemistry, chronotropism and bistability, molecular magnetism, stereochemistry and structural chemistry, ab initio calculation, and supramolecular chemistry. Her current skills and general expertise include experience in handling sensitive materials using vacuum line, inert atmosphere, and Schlenk techniques, experience in the instrumental analysis, UV-Vis and FTIR, DSC-TG, and data interpretation with software specific to each techniques, experience in the data collection and analysis of the magnetic measurements using SQUID devices, and experience in structural chemistry, the data collection, and analysis of crystallographic measurements (single crystal XRD technique and structure refinement) and routine part of the electronic structure methods (DFT calculations on experimental structures and routines relevant to the chemical intuition). Ferbinteanu passed 4 postdoctoral stages at Institut für Anorganische Chemie der Universität Göettingen, Germany; Ochanomizu University, Tokyo; Tokyo Metropolitan University, Tokyo; and Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan. She participated in research activity management as a Project Principal Manager and received national grants (NURC, Ideas, and Complexes Ideas) and international grants (Humboldt, JSPS, and Romania-China). Her publications include 45 articles (36 ISI), 660 citations, and 4 textbooks, with an H-index of 10. She was awarded prestigious fellowships such as Alexander von Humboldt and Japan Society for Promotion Science and UB Publications ISI Awards (2007–2010). Ferbinteanu served as Reviewer for the CNCSIS-MEC, RAF, and ACS Publications (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Inorganic Chemistry, Elsevier Publications, Coordination Chemistry Reviews, and Polyhedron). She is a Member of the Romanian Chemical Society, Romania, Romanian Club Alexander von Humboldt, JSPS Alumni Society, Romania, and a Founder Member of the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) and American Chemical Society (ACS).
