About Me

As a biomedical engineer with a deep focus on biomechanics and signal processing, I want to define my career with my passion for creating innovative medical equipment, underscored by my expertise in 3D printing technologies for medical applications.


Exploring innovative ways to fabricate transducers for medical therapeutic applications using additive manufacturing. Developing a method that bypasses costly cleanroom processes and allows rapid prototyping.


During my master's studies, my skills in lab research and MATLAB were significantly enhanced, while working on my thesis I developed and tested a MATLAB code to estimate Ground Reaction Forces using only kinematic data from Inertial Measurement Units on eight subjects. In my bachelor's degree, I was involved in extracurricular lab-intensive projects, like developing an insole for measuring Ground Reaction Forces and employing 3D printing for pre-operative cardiac surgery planning. Additionally, over several years during my bachelor studies, I collaborated with the faculty team in the Electro-Mobility contest by Continental Iasi, contributing to the development of a self-driving RC car.
