I am a Presidential Fellow and PhD student at George Mason University’s School Of Policy Government and International Affairs, as well as a Research Fellow with Future of Privacy Forum. I research Science and Technology Policy, nationally and internationally and I focus on Internet policy and governance issues, as well as novel forms of governance. I’m mostly a qualitative or mixed-methods type of guy.
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.
You can find me, very easily, by googling my name. But if you’re lazy, here are my profiles: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn. At some point in time, like everybody else, I used Google +, Vimeo, Posterous, Tumblr, FriendFeed, yahoo360, msnspaces, myspace 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 Cotidianul and Academia Catavencu (just fyi, those links might not work, because Romanian webmasters don’t care about preserving legacy content)
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, Science and Technology, the internets, and politics.
