Academic Activity

Main achievements

  • The most important topics in my teaching activity are Digital Signal Processing, Advanced Techniques in Digital Signal Processing, Voice Communication Interfaces with Intelligent Systems, Biometric Technologies, and Computer Programming.
  • I introduced and organized in 2011 a new Master program in the Faculty of Electronics: “Multimedia Technologies in Biometrics and Information Security Applications” (BIOSINF), the main objectives of the program being the followings: acquire basic knowledge of analysis and digital processing of audio/ video signals; obtain extensive knowledge, theoretical and practical, of multimedia systems and biometric technologies, with applications in authentication, information and computer security, and forensics. The program was introduced in the framework of the project PROMISE (“An Integrated Master’s Degree Program in the Fields of Sound, Image and Multimedia Engineering”), FSE – European Structural Funds POSDRU project, ID 61178 (2010 – 2013).
  • I introduced in 1991 the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) course at the “Microelectronics” Department for the first time in the Faculty of Electronics as an independent subject; in subsequent years, this course was followed by similar courses in the other departments of the Faculty. The approach is done in a personal manner, focusing on understanding the basic concepts and major techniques in digital signal processing, viewed from the system designer point of view, and on specific architectures used to implement real systems processing. In 2002 I introduced a new (complementary) course: Advanced Techniques in Digital Signal Processing. It was designed as a continuation of the DSP course, addressing the domain in depth and treating topics of greater complexity.
  • For all my subjects, I organized new laboratories for the application classes.
  • Since 1988, I have coordinated over 70 Diploma Projects (bachelor and master degrees) in the fields of electronic circuit simulation, microprocessor applications, digital signal processing, spoken language technology, audio and image forensics, biometric technologies, personal computer and network security, etc.
  • I was member in 4 national juries for PhD Theses and in 12 Guidance Committees for PhD students in the Faculty of Electronics.
  • From 2014 to 2018 I led the Coordinating Committee for activities related to computer programming and programming languages within the Faculty of Electronics.
