Title / Position


Short description

I teach Finances at the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and during my spare time I enjoy working with young high school students in the field of FTC education and competition robotics. I like to be updated with the latest technology information, to promote Romania with our achievements and inspire the young leaders of tomorrow. I managed to lead the team in winning all major FTC robotics competitions around the world in South Korea, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Canada, Israel, Australia, qualified 6 times in a row at the Robotics World Championship in USA and played the Division Finals 2 years in a row against the USA Teams. During the 2016-2017 season, I succeeded together with our partners in bringing the FTC robotics competition in Romania and making it accessible for the national high school students. We started this way 54 new Romanian teams and mentored over 500 students from all around the country.
