**Alina Carmen Cojocaru** is a Romanian mathematician who works in number theory and is known for her research on elliptic curves, arithmetic geometry, and sieve theory. She is a professor of mathematics at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a researcher in the Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy.^{[1]}

Cojocaru earned her Ph.D. from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, in 2002. Her dissertation, *Cyclicity of Elliptic Curves Modulo p*, was jointly supervised by M. Ram Murty and Ernst Kani.^{[2]}
