Professional experience

January 2017 – present

  • Science outreach, social volunteering
    Together with Colegiul Nat,ional Papiu Ilarian din Târgu Mures, , I won a 8000RON grant for a pilot research project in asymmetric dice and coins. Involved students and a teacher in the project. One student indicated in private discussions that the project helped him get a scholarship at a UK university.
