News for May 2019

  • I will be spending this summer at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems in Saarbrucken, working with Prof. Krishna Gummadi.
  • I'll be presenting my most recent work at the FATES workshop at the Web Conference in May in San Francisco, tackling bias in content recommendation and fair algorithmic design for information diffusion.

About me

My work focuses on mathematical models, data analysis, and policy implications for algorithm design in social networks. I am particularly interested in studying the effect network structures on algorithmic bias through a graph theoretical lens.

I'm Romanian and graduated from Princeton in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in Mathematics and certificates in Computing and Applied Mathematics. Outside of academia I love skiing and modern art. See my CV or contact me for more info!
