Hello. This is my story.
Norbert Petrovici has 15 years of experience in teaching statistics at various levels of complexity, either introductory courses or advanced modeling courses. His teaching philosophy is that applied statistics can be understood much more easily when students can practice on data sets that fit their interests of knowledge and research. As a researcher he studied urban economics and culture and has a vast knowledge of urban and regional data analysis.
He has been working for 10 years as an independent urban planning professional working in the private sector, with various government bodies and non-governmental organizations. He assisted urban regeneration projects and the management of the social transformation of the areas in the infrastructure change processes. He carried out substantial studies for the coordination and regulation of investments in different areas for the local and central administration. He has developed urban culture projects that offer the widest possible access to different social categories in education, opportunities for self-expression or participatory involvement. In the last five years he has participated in over fifty public events as a speaker on the urban economy and culture; coordinated or participated in over thirty workshops; and has participated in more than twenty European conferences organized by specialized professional bodies.
