About me

  • I graduated medical school at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Carol
    Davila" in Bucharest in 2003 and defended my PhD thesis in 2012 at the
    University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio, Finland as a BiND Marie Curie fellow.
    I started my Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet , first working as a work
    package leader inside the FP7 funded neugrid4you project and afterwards I
    received a grant from the Swedish Society for Medical Research.
    Meanwhile I also started my residency at the Geriatric clinic, Karolinska
    University Hospital.
    I am also competent to conduct clinical research in accordance to GCP


  • My main research interest is how magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) related
    biomarkers could improve the care of patients with different levels of
    cognitive impairment. During the years I trained in applying different
    automated methods for analysis of MRI data. My PhD studies yielded very
    interesting findings regarding the prediction to progress from MCI status to
    In the last years I concentrated all my efforts in developing a reliable
    method for the segmentation of white matter changes (WMC). This method is
    called CASCADE and is now available for public use.


  • During the years I had constant teaching activities for PhD students, both
    theoretical and practical sessions.
    For the time being I am course responsible for future occupational therapists
    having the task to introduce them to basic internal medicine and geritaric
    When I am on clinical duty, I am supervising medical students.
