Ciprian-Octavian Truică

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Computer Science and Engineering Department, Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, University Politehnica of Bucharest.

At the University Politehnica of Bucharest, I am a member of

  • AIMAS (Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems Laboratory)

  • MobyLab (Distributed Systems Research Laboratory).

  • Database Systems Group

In February 2022, I started working as a Postdoctoral Researcher on the theme of Disinformation Detection at the InfoLab, Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University in collaboration with The Nordic Observatory for Digital Media and Information Disorder (NORDIS) one of the national hubs of the European Digital Media Observatory.

I received my Ph.D. (2018) in Data Management and Text Mining from the University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania. I hold an M.Sc. Degree (2013) in Computer Science Engineering and Information Technology from University Politehnica of Bucharest, a B.Sc. degree (2013) in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Bucharest, and a B.Sc. (2011) degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from University Politehnica of Bucharest.

In 2021, I was an invited researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (Fraunhofer Fokus) where I worked on Network-Aware Fake News Mitigation.

I was a Postdoctoral Researcher (2019-2020) in the Data-Intensive Systems group at the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark, where I worked on Big Data Analytics for Time Series.

During my Ph.D. studies, I was an invited researcher (2015-2016) at the ERIC laboratory, Université de Lyon 2, France where I worked on Data Management, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing.

My research topics include Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Big Data Analytics, Text Mining, Data Mining, Time Series Analysis, Relational and NoSQL Database Management Systems, Information Retrieval, Business Intelligence, High-Performance Computing, and Cloud Computing.
