Education and career
Born in Reșița, Romania, Foias received his doctorate from the University of Bucharest in 1962, under supervision of Miron Nicolescu. He taught at his alma mater (1966–1979), Paris-Sud 11 University (1979–1983), and Indiana University (1983 until retirement). Beginning in 2000, he was a teacher and researcher at Texas A&M University, where he was a Distinguished Professor.
