Curriculum vitæ et studiorum
Until age 17 I studied at Budapest. Upon winning the 5th place at the National Student Olympiad in physics, I was invited to apply for a scholarship of the United World Colleges. I eventually received the scholarship and thus spent two years in Atlantic College (UK) where I obtained my baccalaureate.
- 1996-2001: Master in physics at the Eötvös Loránd University; degree obtained with "summa cum laude".
- 2001-2005: PhD studies in pure mathematics at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata''. Supervisor: prof. Roberto Longo. Research topic: Operator Algebraic aspects of Conformal Quantum Field Theory. PhD obtained in 2005 (and formally signed by the rector in 2006).
I was several times invited for shorter term collaborations; e.g. I worked with prof. Yasuyuki Kawahigashi at the University of Tokyo and with prof. Karl-Henning Rehren at the Institute of Theoretical Physics in Göttingen. However, my longer postdoctoral positions were the following.
I have also participated to a number of international conferences and summer schools, e.g. I gave talks at Oberwolfach and Banff.
- 2006-2007: postdoctoral position at the Department of Mathematics, University of Rome "Tor Vergata''
- 2007-2008: "Junior Fellow'' grant for 2x2 months at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute,
- 2009-2010: Research Grant; postdoctoral position financed from the ERC AdG 227458 "Operator Algebras and Conformal Field Theory" at the Department of Mathematics, University of Rome "Tor Vergata".
- 2007-2011: "Young Researcher" position at the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics.
- 2016-2016: Invited Researcher (for one semester); position financed from the ERC AdG 669240 "Quantum Algebraic Structures and Models"
In 2011 I became an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematical Analysis of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME). In 2016 I was promoted to associate professor, which is also my current title. I am a member of the editorial board of Periodica Mathematica Hungarica, and between 2012 and 2015 I was also a Bolyai János Research Fellow of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. I am the organizer of a yearly mathematical contest at my University. I regularly participate at international scientific conferences; this year for example I was invited speaker at the conference "Quantum Information and Operator Algebras" held in Rome. Apart from teaching at BME, I often teach a course regarding Quantum Probability Theory and Quantum Logic at the Aquincum Institute of Technology (AIT). and at the Budapest Semesters of Mathematics (BSM).
I have a profound interest in music and I play the violin. Apart from Hungarian, I am fluent (and taught University courses) both in English and in Italian.
