Cristian Mahulea is currently an Assistant Professor (Profesor Contratado Doctor) at the Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering of the University of Zaragoza, Spain.
He received the B.S. and M.Sc. degrees in control engineering from the Technical University of Iasi, Romania, in 2001 and 2002, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in systems engineering from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, in 2007.
His research interests include discrete event systems, hybrid systems, automated manufacturing, Petri nets, mobile robotics and healthcare systems. He has participated in the development and implementation of Petri Net Toolbox and SimHPN, two MATLAB softwares for simulation, analysis and synthesis of discrete-event systems modeled with Petri nets. He co-authored, with M.H. Matcovschi and O. Pastravanu the book Applications of Petri Nets in Studying Discrete Event Systems, Iasi, Romania in 2002. Cristian Mahulea participated in the development of RMTool, a collection of tools for modeling, path planning and motion control of mobile robots.
