About the Book
I am a Professor Emerita retired, after 37 years, from California State University, Northridge. My professional interests and teaching areas were manufacturing engineering, artificial intelligence, CAD/CAM, statistics, and engineering economics. I published numerous articles and chapters in books, and participated at national and international conferences (making presentations, organizing sessions) in my specialty fields in engineering. I am of Romanian origin, but have lived for 48 years in Los Angeles. I traveled extensively. I am a journalist too, since throughout the years, I published many articles about exceptional Romanian presence around the world. I was working in the field of engineering but given my studies in architecture and industrial des my “other passion” is art. I own an art gallery whose emphasis is on modern art, and which organizes cultural events.
