Senior Lecturer


I received my PhD degree (with commendation) from Tampere University of Technology (TUT), Finland, in 2001. From 1993 to 1997, I was a Junior Assistant at "Politehnica" University of Bucharest. In 1997 I joined TUT where I spent more than 14 years as a Researcher, Senior Researcher and Academy Research Fellow in the Department of Signal Processing. From January 2012 to June 2012 I was with Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT), and in July 2012 I joined the Department of Statistics, University of Auckland, where I am currently a Senior Lecturer (above the bar). My research is mainly focused on stochastic complexity and its applications.
