Biography

I am currently a post-doc at the MTA-ELTE Statistical and Biological Physics Research Group of Tamás Vicsek. From 2012 to 2014 I was a Royal Society Newton International Fellow at the  Oxford Navigation Group, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford working with  Dora Biro.

I was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1980. I recieved my M.Sc. degree in physics from the Eötvös University of Budapest, Hungary, in 2004, and M.Sc. in physics teaching from the same University in 2005. I received my Ph.D. in December, 2010 ("Modeling and quantitative analysis of collective motion of organisms").
