I am originally from Bucharest, Romania and earned a B.S. in Computer Science at the Polytechnical University of Bucharest. I moved to Charlottesville in the Fall of 2004 to pursue graduate school at the University of Virginia, where I earned a Master's in Computer Science, a Master of Science in Mathematics, and a Master of Teaching.

I am passionate about math and computer science education, especially for girls and women, and I co-founded a Math Circle for girls and held lessons for four years until the COVID-19 pandemic.

In January 2021, I decided to focus full-time on education. After completing my Master of Teaching, I joined the teaching faculty at the Peabody School for the 2022-2023 academic year where I taught Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 to academically advanced middle school students.

Currently, I teach one Calculus section, Math 1210-400, at the University of Virginia and I focus on expanding the coding and math classes offered at Blue Ridge Boost.
