Resume

Dr. Popescu Dana-Georgeta (37 years) received her Engineer Diploma  at “Politehnica” University in Bucharest at Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology in 2009 and her PhD degree in Engineering in 2013 at the same university with a thesis focusing on photonic crystals technology. Starting with 2010 she joined the surface and interface science group led by Dr. Cristian-Mihail Teodorescu at NIMP. Here she had the opportunity to do cutting edge research in the field of semiconducting surfaces, their interface with magnetic metals, by preparing systems with unusual magnetism at room temperature. Pursuing research for 3 months in the laboratory led by Dr. N Barret at CEA in France, Dr. Popescu enlarged her experience in the field of electron spectroscopy techniques, especially applied to complex ferroelectric and multiferroic oxide surfaces and interfaces. Other experiments were led by Dr. Popescu on different equipments at Synchrotron lines from Italy, Switzerland and Poland. Recently, she started a study on ferroelectric Rashba materials.

The main original achievements capitalize in 30 articles (24 ISI publications, 3 under review) – 18 as main/corresponding author, 4 book chapter (3 under review) and 43 conferences (6 invited, 19 oral presentation, 1 best poster prize – SCES2021), 2 young research team projects management (2015; 2021), 1 grant from L’Oréal-UNESCO „For women in science” (2021), 2 other personal grants projects and the membership in the other 10 projects, 2 patents, 2 scholarships (TRENDOXIDE 2015, Brescia, Italy; ICTP, Trieste, Italy), a scientific record of more than 250 citation, H-index = 9 and Guest Editor at Materials Journal.
