Education

(1998) First Class Hons BEng in Communication Engineering (Electronics) from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

 

(1999) First Class Hons MSc in Communication Engineering from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. My MSc dissertation was on "Serial & Parallel Convolutional Concatenated Codes (i.e. Turbo Codes)", and this project was carried out at the University of Plymouth, United Kingdom. This was possible thanks to a studentship funded by the European Union's Socrates programme.

 

(2002) PhD degree from the University of Plymouth, United Kingdom. My PhD thesis, was on: "Spread Spectrum-based Video Watermarking Algorithms for Copyright Protection".

 

(2005) Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE), from the University of Kent, United Kingdom.
