I was born in 1982 in Bucharest. I graduated from Spiru Haret National College and I am a graduate of the Faculty of History, University of Bucharest (2005). I obtained a Ph.D. in history at the same university, in 2011. In 2014-2015, I wrote the postdoctoral research The Impact of World War I on the descendants of the Romanian nobility, in a project coordinated by the Romanian Academy.

I also studied abroad at the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne, at the Centre de Recherches en Histoire du XIXe Siècle and at the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO) in Paris and I attended the International Summer University of the European College of Liberal Arts (ECLA) in Berlin.

I worked as an expert for the Romanian Cultural Institute (2007-2008, 2015-present) and for the Romanian Ministry of Education, at the European Affairs Department (2012). I was a consultant for the Romanian Royal House (2007-2008). In 2013 I was the director of the Memory of the Romanian Exile Department at the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile (IICCMRE). In 2018-2020 I was a general director and a deputy general director at the Romanian Cultural Institute.

At present, I work as a lecturer at the Faculty of Letters, University of Bucharest, Cultural Studies Department, and I coordinate the “Emblazoned History” book series at the Corint Publishing House.

I passionately listen to Renaissance and Baroque music, I feel good in the world of Tolstoy’s books or admiring Italian primitives’ paintings, I like travelling (so far, I had the chance to visit more than 25 countries on three continents). I wrote some books. However, what I like the most is travelling into the past, digging up old archives, talking to people and listening to their stories. I think history cannot and should not ignore individual destinies.
