Following a BSc. from UAIC-Iasi, Romania (web) he performes a PhD. on molecular quantum magnets (experiment, web). Then he carries out a 3-year postdoctoral research program at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands (web) with results in the superconducting quantum computing area. A brief postdoc at Michigan State University (web) follows, where he works on a high-frequency setup to study spin torque devices. Since 2005, he is at FSU - Dept of Physics and affiliated to the NHMFL. The research activities are done both in the FSU campus (nanofabrication facilities, web) and NHMFL (lab location, web).
