I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) since 2011 and I receive the János Bolyai Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences since 2014. Before that, I worked as a researcher and as Head of the Economic Research Division at the Hungarian Ministry of Finance between 2005 and 2009 and as Senior Economist at the Office of the Fiscal Council of Hungary in 2010. I have also been involved as senior expert in various projects in econometrics, applied statistics, impact assessment, labour, public and health economics.

I gained my Ph.D. in Statistics (Applied Mathematics) at ELTE and my master degrees at ELTE (in Mathematics) and at Corvinus University (in Economics). My research articles have been published in microeconometrics, time series analysis and empirical labour, public and health economics.
