    Work Experience

    February 2010 -- present: post-doctoral research associate at the Asher Space Research Institute, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Technion -- Israel Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Professor Pini Gurfil.

    Mitigating the effects of zonal harmonics on the absolute and relative orbits of artificial satellites by using analytical and numerical techniques. Direct application: accurate initialization for cluster flying in order to achieve close proximity during long periods of time, without any control inputs.

    Developing a new model for numerical integration of the absolute orbits in the presence of perturbations in order to improve the accuracy and the speed of integration. Direct application: inertial orbit initialization and control.

    Developing new analytical models for station-keeping and formation-keeping. Direct application: reduced fuel consumption, lifetime extension.

    February 2004 -- January 2010: Technical University Gheorghe Asachi Iasi, Romania. Lecturer in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics.

    Besides teaching, I was carrying out research in fundamental Astrodynamics, nonlinear problems in Classical Mechanics (the Foucault Pendulum, Kepler problem in rotating reference frames, relative orbital motion), fundamental Rigid Body Kinematics (with the focus on attitude kinematics and mathematical models in robotics) and nonlinear differential equations in Applied Mathematics.

    September 1999 -- February 2004: Emil Racovita National College, Iasi, Romania. Lecturer in mathematics.

    Besides teaching, I was preparing the Romanian team for the International Olympiad of Mathematics and I was a committee member of the National Olympiad of Mathematics for the Iasi district.
