Ioana O. Bercea

I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park, in the Computer Science Department . My advisor is Prof. Samir Khuller.

I obtained my Master's degree from UMD in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Aravind Srinivasan.
I graduated in 2010 from the University of Chicago, with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics(Honors) and Computer Science.
