Short biography

Dr. Radu G. Zmeureanu received his Engineering Diploma from the Faculty of Building Service Systems of the Civil Engineering Institute of Bucharest (Technical University of Construction of Bucharest, after 1990), Romania. He completed the International Post-graduate Programme in Informatics and Mathematics for Research organized by UNESCO at the University of Bucharest. He obtained in 1987 his Ph.D. in Building Studies in the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science of Concordia University, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and joined the university as an Assistant Professor that year. In 1990 he became an Associate Professor, and then in 1999 he was promoted to Professor.
