I was born in 1985 in Budapest. I started my secondary studies in the Secondary Grammar School of Óbuda. After that I have been admitted to the Faculty of Sciences of the Eötvös Loránd University as a geographer.
Furthermore during the university I spent my free time discovering the European landscapes and beside that I thoroughly roamed the Carpathian Basin and the Balkan area. I toured in the mountaines of the region and explored the residents’ culture. In 2009 I got my degree of geographer in faculty of regional and settlement development with that still living persuasion that through knowing the spatial coherency we may come closer to the proper development of a region.
I have worked for the VÁTI Nonprofit Ltd. for a short time as an intern and an expert. Since February 2010 I have worked for the CESCI as a project manager and strategic planner, then as a director of planning.
I am writing my Ph.D. thesis on cross-border topic about cross-border regional development and network connection and zone of attraction of settlements. I intend to publish in this subject too, in order to maintain and continually develop my expertise.
