Welcome to my webpage!

I am a research associate at the Department of Mathematics at University College London. I have joined the Department to work with Professor Rod Halburd and Professor Steven Bishop on the project called CIMPLEX, standing for Bringing CItizens, Models and Data together in Participatory, Interactive SociaL Exploratories.

I got my PhD in Mathematics in 2014 from the University of Szeged, Hungary, with a thesis entitled "Transmission dynamics of infectious diseases on transportation networks". My supervisor was Gergely Röst.

I am also part of the Analysis and Stochastic Research Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Previously, I worked as postdoctoral researcher at the Agent-Based Modelling Laboratory at York University, Toronto. My supervisor was Seyed Moghadas.

My research interests include the mathematical modelling of real life phenomena, like the spread of infectious diseases and more general social contagion processes or the dynamical behaviour of natural populations, using advanced systems of differential equations. The focus of my current work is on metapopulation models, I am especially interested in spreading processes in spatial epidemic models.
