Cristian joined NJIT in 2004. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in computer science from Rutgers University in 2004 and 2002, respectively. Prior to that, he got M.S. and B.S. degrees in computer science from University Politehnica of Bucharest. Cristian´s research is focused on designing system architectures, protocols, middleware, and programming models for ubiquitous networked systems. He believes that, besides papers and articles, prototype systems and software distributions are major research outcomes in the computer systems area. His research areas include: Pervasive and Mobile Computing; Mobile Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks; Distributed Systems. Cristian teaches classes on networking and mobile computing which combine theoretical study with significant programming projects. He always looks forward to working with highly motivated students on current or new research projects.
