Dr. Câmpeanu researches the theory of computing and works to describe efficiently a complex object by providing consistent information and eliminating redundancies. This philosophy, to compress information, carries through to his investigations into languages which may result in improved software packages that could be written faster and with fewer errors.
- Descriptional complexity of automata and of other objects that can be described using (formal) languages
- Deciadbility and complexity of problems related to words and languages
- Minimization of representations, and application to compression techniques
