He received PhD degree in 1979 from University of Bucharest, Romania.

Now he is senior researcher at the Institute of Mathematics of the Romania Academy, in Departement of Differential Equations.

His research interests are in qualitative theory of differential equations mainly in singular perturbation techniques, stability theory and asymptotic expansions. Also, his current research interests include control theory, robust control for deterministic and stochastic systems, for finite dimensional and infinite dimensional systems both in time-invariant and time-varying casses. The Romania Academy awarded him "Gheorghe Lazar" prize in 1994 for the papers published in control field.

He is a member of the American Mathematical Society.
