Curriculum Vitae


Irina Ilioaea earned her PhD in Mathematics from Georgia State University in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Florian Enescu. During her doctorate program, she pursued research in theoretical commutative algebra and computational algebra with applications to electrical engineering and computer science. She received the “Mathematics Achievement Award” in 2019 and the “Fred Massey Endowed Award” in 2018 from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Georgia State University for her research publications and teaching activity. Irina obtained her master’s degree in Algebra and her bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from University of Bucharest in Romania.


Research Interests

My main research interests are in Commutative Algebra, Combinatorial Commutative Algebra and Computational Algebra. Currently, my research lies in tight closure theory and Frobenius complexity theory.
