is an associate professor in the mathematics and statistics Department at the University of Guelph. She completed her BSc and MSc in mathematics at the University of Bucharest (Romania) and her PhD in mathematics at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada. She held an Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada [NSERC] postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre des Researches Mathematiques (CRM) in Montreal in 2003. Her research interests are in creating mathematical models of environmental choices in populations, the application of dynamic games to vaccination behaviour, and infinite-dimensional projected systems (PDS) which are linked with various formulations of known applied problems, such as optimization problems, games and network problems.
She held several visiting positions at the Centre des Researches Mathematiques, the Fields Institute, Harvard, and Northwestern Universities and most recently at University of Brescia. She held one of only two Canada-US Fulbright Visiting Research Chair positions awarded in 2010 in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
