Dr. Gabriela PAVELESCU (female)

senior scientist at the National Institute for Optoelectronics INOE 2000, Bucharest, received a PhD degree in plasma physics, in 1982, from the University of Bucharest. Her activities began in the field of hollow cathode discharges in magnetic field (experimental and theoretical studies), later moving to the investigation of the optical properties of materials. Present activities refer to the fluorescence and laser induced fluorescence applied to the water sciences and soil diagnosis. She received the "Dragomir Hurmuzescu" prize awarded by the Romanian Academy of Science (for Physics) in 1995. Has a vast project management experience, gathered as program director (Nucleus Programs OPTRONICA 20032017), director and project responsible for national projects guided towards environment assessment. She has expertise, in the field of materials synthesis and characterization and in the environmental monitoring and evaluation through optospectral techniques. Her practice in several research stages abroad and in international cooperation enables her with a more complex vision on the research problems, at international level. She published more than 55 papers in journals indexed in ISI Web of Knowledge (more than 240 citations).
