ACM recognizes LU's Andrei

Stefan Andrei, LU computer science associate professor, was recently recognized by the Senior Member Committee of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

The world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, ACM delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession.

Its senior member program, an international recognition initiated in 2006, includes members with at least 10 years of professional experience who have demonstrated performance that sets them apart from their peers through technical leadership, and technical or professional contributions. Only 25 percent of the nominees are recognized each year.

“I am excited and proud to be awarded by the ACM Senior Member Recognition Program,” said Andrei. “But I think my greatest reward is actually the fact that I am working with students.”

After earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Cuza University of Iasi in Romania and his doctoral degree from Hamburg University in Germany, Andrei began his professional career at Lamar University in 2007.

“I’ll continue to teach students new concepts, to train them for programming competitions and advise them on doing research,” he said. “When I see the students happy for their achievements, this makes me feel younger.
