Since January 2017, I am a junior fellow at the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies at the University of Hamburg.

In November 2016, I have successfully defended my dissertation on "Sceptical argumentation and philosophical theology: Topics in Hellenistic philosophy", at the Department of Philosophy, Central European University (CEU). My doctoral research was supervised by Prof. Gábor Betegh, and my examiners were Prof. Tad Brennan (Cornell) and Prof. David Sedley (Cambridge). I have passed my viva voce without corrections. I also hold an MA-equivalent degree ('Diploma') from Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest, with a research thesis on the Platonic origins of Academic scepticism (advisor: Péter Lautner).

From August to December 2015, I was a Fulbright visiting graduate student at the Sage School of Philosophy, Cornell University, where I was supervised mainly by Tad Brennan (co-tutors: Gail Fine and Charles Brittain). In the Michaelmas Term of 2014 and the Lent Term of 2015, I was a visiting graduate student at the Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge, where I was supervised by David Sedley.

I have also spent some time with scholarships and fellowships in Vandoeuvres (Fondation Hardt, May 2015), Vienna (IWM, April-June 2014), Fribourg (Université de Fribourg, March-April 2012), and Paris (ENS, February-May 2009).

I was born and raised in a major town of North-Eastern Hungary.
