I have graduated as an economist-sociologist. I have obtained my PhD in 1999. Between 1988 and 1996 I worked for the Institute for World Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and between 1996 and 2020, in the Institute of Economics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Between 1997 and 2000 I was employed by the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris. Since April 2020, I am the director of the Institute of World Economics. I teach at BGE since 2016 and I am a member of its doctoral school. Besides BGE, I teach courses at the University of Szeged.

There are more than 1000 citations to my papers, and the summarized impact factor of my articles is 15.3.
