Cristian Mahulea is an Associate Professor (Profesor Titular de Universidad with national accreditation for full professor) at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) with the Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering beeing Head of the department since July 2020.

He received the Laurea and M.S. degrees in control engineering from the "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iasi (Romania), in 2001 and 2002, respectively, and Ph.D. degree in systems engineering from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 2007. He joined the University of Zaragoza in 2008 as assistant professor, becoming associate professor in 2017. He was visiting professor at the University of Cagliari (Italy) with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering during five months in 2008 and 2010.

His research interests include discrete event systems, hybrid systems, automated manufacturing, Petri nets, mobile robotics and healthcare systems. He co-authored, with Mihaela Matcovschi and Octavian Pastravanu the book Applications of Petri Nets in Studying Discrete Event Systems, Iasi, Romania in 2002 and co-authored with Marius Kloetzer and Ramon Gonzalez the book Path Planning of Cooperative Mobile Robots Using Discrete Event Models, Wiley-IEEE Press, January 2020. He participated and was the main developer of one MATLAB toolbox called Petri Net Toolbox for the simulation, analysis and synthesis of discrete-event systems modeled with discrete Petri nets and one Matlab toolbox called RMTool for path planning and motion control of mobile robots.

He has been a Visiting Researcher at the University of Sheffield (U.K.), University of Cagliari (Italy), Boston University (USA) and ENS Paris-Saclay (France).

He is a Senior Member of IEEE.
