DescriptionCurrently i am employed as Scientific Researcher 3 in biology, focused on benthic marine and freshwater organisms, in the Impact Studies Laboratory of GeoEcoMar - National Institute for Marine Geology and Geo-ecology. In 2010, I was employed as a technician, later being promoted at the level of Scientific Researcher 3. In 2008, I graduated the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, Biology Specialization, at Ovidius University and from 2008 to 2010 I attended Master's Degree "Conservation of Biodiversity" at the same faculty in Constanta. In 2012 I was enrolled in the doctoral at IOSUD - "Dunărea de Jos" University of Galati, Doctoral School of Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and in December 2017, got my PhD thesis with Title "Assessment of aquatic ecosystems of the principal lakes of the Danube Delta for fish exploitation”, Since the volunteer period I have been involved in various monitoring projects on the lower sector of the Danube River, Danube Delta lakes, littoral lakes, and Romanian Black Sea Shelf Coast. In 2019 i won the Danubius Young Scientist Award by the IDM European perspectives Regional actions.
Project Description- Resilience, adaptation and mitigation to hydroclimatic extreme events. Improving resilience and adaptation capacity of water infrastructure (e.g., industrial water facilities, urban networks, wastewater treatment facilities, stormwater management systems and rural systems) to hydroclimatic extreme events. - Tools for water management - in the context of hydroclimatic extreme events Developing tools (e.g., multi-risk approach, decision support tools, monetary/non- monetary costs valuation) to support the design and implementation of strategies for adaptation and mitigation to hydro-climatic extreme events, especially floods (including “flash-floods”), heat waves and droughts in a catchment to sea perspective. Generating new methodologies, tools and models for water resources assessment/modelling for water bodies in scarcely monitored /data scarce areas. A combination of physical and digital solutions is expected, and opportunities provided by citizen science should be seized. “Smartening the water system” and use of innovative digitalization, including improved/new sensors, models, communications and computing technologies.
