Republic of Moldova

High School:
1995 - 1998 Republican Real Lyceum
(with specialization in Physics and Mathematics) d. Chisinau, R. Moldova

1998 - 2001 Department of Physics,
State University of Moldova

2001 - 2002 Bachelor Diploma;
High Energy and Elementary Particles Physics Department, Faculty of Physics,
St. Petersburg State University

2002 - 2005 Master Diploma; High Energy and Elementary Particles Physics Department, Faculty of Physics, St. Petersburg State University

Research Experience:

2000 - 2001 Participation in seminar on String/M-theory and Gravity
led by Prof. Dr. Sergiu Vacaru at Academy of Sciences of Moldova.

2000 - 2001 Fourth year project:
"Numeric Modeling of the Wing Oscillations Problem" under supervision of Dr. Alexandru Barsuc.

2001 - 2002 Bachelor project:
"Introduction of the Torsion in the Randall-Sundrum Model" under supervision of Prof. Valentin Franke. The thesis was devoted to one extension of the remarkable scenario by incorporating the Cartan's torsion tensor.

2002 - 2005 Master project:
"Effective Field Equations on a 4-Dimensional Submanifold in a 5-Dimensional Space-Time" under supervision of Prof. Valentin Franke. The thesis was devoted to the study of effective field theory on the 3-brane in a 5-dimensional bulk endowed with Z_2-symmetry motivated by the massless bosonic sector of type IIB theory compactified on a sphere S^5.

2005 Participation in seminar on Gravity and Cosmology led by Prof. Andrey Grib at A. Friedmann Laboratory for Theoretical Physics.
