My education includes an MSc in Geography and Earth Sciences (ELTE), MA in History (Károli University of the Reformed Church) MA in Ethics, Anthropology and Social Sciences (University of Veszprém). I wrote my doctoral thesis at the Department of Regional Sciences at ELTE Faculty of Sciences in 2009, and one year later I obtained my PhD degree. I wrote my dissertation about modernisation in Ladakh, a fascinating region of the Kashmir Himalayas. My current research has been focused on social consequences of modernisation in developing countries (Nepal, Bhutan and India)
I have been working in public education for more than twenty years as a high school teacher. Apart from that I have taught some courses at ELTE Faculty of Sciences, Eötvös József College, College of Foreign Trade, College of Communications (now Metropolitan University). In February 2017 I became a part-time instructor at BGE KVIK.

In my free time I do a lot of test- marking of course, but I like cycling, swimming and I’m into guerrilla beer brewing. Since 2009 I have been a high-altitude trekking guide for that specialises in organising treks, and mountain-climbing expeditions. I have taken climbers to four-, five- and six-thousanders in the Himalayas (Bhutan, Nepal and Ladakh) and in the Middle-East (Ararat, Damavand) and in the Caucasus (Bazardüzü).

Subjects taught: Economic Geography (in Hungarian and in English); Regional Economics; History of Economics
