about me

I am a PhD student at George Mason University’s School Of Public Policy,

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science in English from The College of Political Science at the University of Bucharest in 2008, and in 2010 I graduated from the Master of International Affairs Program with a Science, Technology and Society graduate minor at The Pennsylvania State University.

Between August 2011 and May 2012, I was a student in the Mass Communications Doctorate at Penn State’s College of Communications. For a year, starting in September 2011 I became Social Media Manager for Onward State, the largest Penn State student-centric blog platform.

Over summer 2009, I Interned at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars’ Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies.

You can find me, very easily by googling my name. But if you’re lazy, here are my profiles: Google +, InstagramTwitterFacebookFlickrVimeoLinkedIn. At some point in time, like everybody else, I used Posterous, TumblrFriendFeedyahoo360msnspacesmyspace and blogspot.

Back in Romania, I worked for Inpolitics.ro and its predecessor epolitics.ro, and I would periodically write articles for the previous incarnations of Cotidianuland Academia Catavencu.
I feel passionate about creative topics, such as photography, video-making, new (social) media, writing (mostly comedy, but others as well), and anything related to policy, emerging S&T, but also about Penn State Football, International Affairs, and politics in general.
