I am a data mining researcher who investigates how to develop and leverage ground-breaking techniques to explore time series datasets at the confluence of theoretical computer science and application domains like medicine, neuroscience, economics, transportation, and complex decision making. With more than fifteen years of teaching experience in various academic institutions, I am committed to using my love and talent for teaching and research to empower others through education to make a difference in the world . I am one of the first WPI faculty to be recognized with tenure and promotion through WPI’s new tenure track for teachers.
Co-directing a project center in Romania allows me to contribute to building a strong connection between the two cultures that I am deeply anchored in. I am committed to help our students explore other cultures, understand the issues that they are facing, and become part of impactful initiatives to mitigate them. Advising project teams is one of the most engaging and rewarding aspects of my work.
In line with my commitment to broadening participation in computer science in general and AI in particular, I participated in the CRA, Women and Education Chapters, am a co-founder of the Women Interdisciplinary Scholarship Engagement Network (WISE), and am currently leading efforts to expand diversity and inclusion through the introduction of the AI4ALL program at WPI starting in Fall 2022.

Rodica Neamtu, associate teaching professor of computer science, was quoted in a Worcester Magazine article on her students developing an iOS phone app for Worcester-based nonprofit Audio Journal. “I realized that this was going to be something bigger than creating a nice app,” Neamtu said, referring to the project the students did as part of their Major Qualifying Project (MQP).
