I have been associate researcher of Romanian Institute for Science and Technology. Previously I was associate researcher of the Stoilow Institute of Mathematics. I have 9 published papers, 3 of which in journals. I wrote the first Dialectica extraction modules for the proof-system MinLog. Check out the 2021 Minimal Logic For Dialectica Interpretation page maintained by Triffon (still no monotone extraction module ported from Dan's 2006 tuples variant).

I am philosophiae doctor of Ecole Polytechnique (and in co-tutelle of Universitaet Muenchen). I got my M.Sc. in Computer Science in August 2001 from BRICS, University of Aarhus with Prof. Kohlenbach. I got my B.Sc. (4 years) in Mathematics in July 1998 from the University of Bucharest with Prof. Georgescu.

Modal functional (`Dialectica') interpretation, (in progress). The associated Scheme software is here. I believe that certified computer programs are better obtained from non-constructive proofs of given specifications. Either modularly, by means of light variants of Dialectica interpretation. Or target-oriented, by means of refined variants of A-translation.
