this is where is speak of myself in the third person and I hope this is how others see me
Dorin Stanciu is a professor and a researcher in psychology, with a strong interest in technology acceptance and anything cyberpsychology. He loves statistics and research and is anxious to see how artificial intelligence and machine learning will change research in social sciences, on the one hand, and teaching and learning, on the other hand.
and this is what I do
I teach psychology, ergonomics/human factors (with a heavy accent on human-robot interaction) and several other courses at the Technical University in Cluj-Napoca.
I am also a contributing faculty at Walden University, one of the largest providers of higher education in the world, where I coordinate doctoral students and also perform university research reviews. This gives me fantastic opportunities to work with students and colleagues from all over the world on amazing projects.
I do not really post or blog, mostly because I don’t have the time, but also because there are already heaps of valuable information out there. But I do try to respond to questions that are send to me and I make a point of considering all suggestions made my way.
