Nicoleta received her Ph.D in Differential Geometry from University
“Politehnica” of Bucharest, Romania. She has spent more than 4 years in research,
working as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Kent
at Canterbury and the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom and at Johannes
Kepler University and Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied
Mathematics, Austria. Her teaching experience spans over 17 years and ranges
from high school through graduate level. She is a member of the Society for
Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the American Mathematical Society, and
the Association for Women in Mathematics.
