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 use my love and talent for teaching and research to empower others through education to make a difference in the world.
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.
Professional Highlights & Honors
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).
