About Me | CV

I was born on 1 February 1985 in Budapest, Hungary. I obtained a Master degree in Astronomy in 2009 at the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest. 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. In the autumn of 2009 I moved to Belgium to start a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics 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 stayed in Belgium after my defence: from 1 January 2014 I held a short term postdoctoral position (PDMK) of the Special Research Fund (BOF) of the KU Leuven, then from 1 October 2014 until 30 September 2017 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the The Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO), Belgium. Afterwards I kept my affiliation with the KU Leuven as a voluntary Research Fellow.

On 1 February 2018 I joined Transport & Mobility Leuven to do research in a field that is directly relevant for both our society and our environment. My first objective is evaluating strategies that cities could follow to minimise harmful transport-related emissions using complex quantitative models (as part of the CLAiR-City project).

In my free time I am a passionate road cyclist, a keen photographer, and probably a gadget-maniac. For the full picture, please see one of my CVs above, and the contents of this webpage. I am also present on many social media platforms and websites, you can find links to these in the sidebar to the right.
