About Me | CV

I was born on 1 February 1985 in Budapest, Hungary. I went to the Németh László Experimental Eight–Grade High School, where I studied advanced Mathematics, Physics, and Latin language along with Greek and Roman culture. In 2003, I enrolled at the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest, and after five years there and one semester as an ERASMUS student at the KU Leuven in Belgium, I obtained a Master degree in Astronomy in 2009. I wrote my Master thesis, entitled GD 244 – Asteroseismological study of a DA White Dwarf at the Konkoly Observatory under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Margit Paparó.

On the autumn of 2009 I returned to Belgium to start a PhD at the Institute of Astronomy of KU Leuven, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Conny Aerts and Dr. Maryline Briquet. I defended my thesis, entitled Observational asteroseismology of B-type stars on the main sequence with the CoRoT and Kepler satellites on 31 May 2013. I kept working here after my defence, and from 1 January 2014 I held a short term postdoctoral position (PDMK) of the Special Research Fund (BOF) of the KU Leuven.

Starting from 1 October 2014 I am a Postdoctoral Fellow of the The Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), Belgium.

In my free time, I am a passionate road cyclist, a keen photographer, and probably a gadget-maniac. For the full picture, please see my Curriculum Vitae and a list of my publications and presentations. I am also present on many social media platforms and websites, you can find links to these in the sidebar on the right.
