** Remembering Octavian-Eugen Ganea (1987 - 2022) **

Octavian impacted so many of us. His intellect, energy ever-present and contagious, always delivered with kindness and generosity. So full of creative ideas, always smiling, seeing the positive side, giving back more than he received. He was a dear friend, a bright colleague, and an inspiring mentor to younger students. Please see for more information.
