Valentina is a geometric analyst specialising in elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations. She possesses additional extensive training in differential geometry, calculus of variations, dynamical systems, general relativity and functional analysis. Several of her projects have direct applications to bush fire modelling and biological membrane modelling.Born in Romania, Valentina completed her training in both Romania and Germany where she acquired her interest in curvature flows and applications in the group of Klaus Ecker at Freie University Berlin.Since 2012 Valentina joined the staff at Wollongong University, the place that she now calls home. She is a proud activist of Equity and Equality in mathematical sciences and since 2018 a DECRA Fellow of the Australian Research Council, studying partition problems through curvature flows and their applications to fire line modelling.
