Mrs. Maria Cristina TRIFU has graduate the Polytechnic University of Bucharest; specialisation: Water treatment and clean up equipment's and she has the Master's Degree in field of Water Resources Engineering, the courses being organised in the frame of TEMPUS Project, Diplome d'Etudes Approfondies: Sciences de l'Eau et Environnement. From 2002 year she is PhD in Biogeochemical of the superficial hydro systems, at the Pierre et Marie Curie University - Paris VI..

Mrs Cristina TRIFU is senior researcher and Head of Eco-Hydrology Department. She is member of Scientific Council of NIHWM and head of Water Quality commission within the Romanian Society of Hydrological Sciences.

Her activity concerns on modeling of the surface water quality. Mrs. Trifu has a good experience in national and international programs, as expert and she has been involved in the following projects:

  • A pilot system for Urban Environmental Impact Assessment in relation with Urban Planned Land Use, using Open-GIS technology and pollution level estimation procedures - ASSURE, LIFE ENV/ RO99/006746
  • Environmental Statistics Surveys - PHARE Program, EuropeAid/114921/D/SV/RO. Participants: Greece, Romania
  • Western Black Sea integrated Environmental SyStem - W-BLESS, Environmental Capacity Building Project. Participants: Italy, Romania
  • Design and the implementation at the regional scale of Balkan countries of a Water Observation System for Decision Support - WOISYDES (is continuing WMO MED-HYCOS Project) Participants: France, Spain, Malta, Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia
  • Development of an Integrated Basin Management System in order to correlate water quality and quantity analysis with socio-economical analysis, using Open-GIS technology - DIMINISH, LIFE03 ENV/RO/000539
  • Elaboration and implementation of pollutant transport models

In the period 1997 - 1999 she was associated teacher at the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest in the field Hydrology and Urban Hydrology.

Miss Andreea Denisa BARBU is a biologist, working at the Eco- Hydrology Laboratory within the National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management, Bucharest. She graduated the Faculty of Biology, Ecology Department, University of Bucharest, in 2002, and she attended her master courses in the filed of Urban Integrated Development, at University of Architecture and Urbanism, Bucharest. Due to the positive appreciation of her efforts and performance during the master courses, she was awarded a summer scholarship in 2003 in the framework of Institute National de Sciences Appliqués - Lyon.

Since 2003 Miss. Barbu intended for a doctoral position at the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest, Faculty of Hydrotechnique. Her thesis concerns "The antropic activities impact on rivers and lakes".

In the framework of the Eco-Hydroloy Laboratory, Miss. Barbu was involved in some projects about the surface water quality, especially:

- studies concerning the compatibility between the biological and engineering approach for the purpose of defining a new concept for the designing of water management;
- studies for establishing the ecological discharge;
- Development of an Integrated Basin Management System in order to correlate water quality and quantity analysis with socio-economical analysis, using Open-GIS technology - DIMINISH, LIFE03 ENV/RO/000539.
