I was born in Várpalota, Hungary, in 1963. After finishing the local elementary school and the Thuri György High School, I studied physics at the Eötös Loránd University, Faculty of Sciences, Budapest. During these years I prepared 2 awarded Student Research Reports. I received my MSc degree in 1987. My first position at our University was at the Laboratory of Surface and Interface Physics as research assistant, later I moved to the Department of Atomic Physics for a teaching position. I am assistant professor at the Department of Physics of Complex Systems since 1998. In 2000, I received an MA degree in European Studies at the Budapest Institute of Graduate International and Diplomatic Studies.

Research interests: self-organized criticality, time series analysis of transient chaos, modeling of population dynamics, granular matter, modeling of microtubules, experimental studies of pattern formation in suspensions of swimming bacteria, statistical analysis of atmospheric data, laboratory modeling of environmental flow phenomena.

International research experiences: 1993 Gerhard Mercator Universität, Duisburg, 1995 Forschungszentrum Jülich, Jülich, 1996 University of Arizona, Tucson, 1998 Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, 2000 Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen, 2008 University if Minnesota, Minneapolis.

Awards: 1997 Zoltán Magyary Postdoctoral Fellowship, 1999 Széchenyi Professorship, 2003 István Széchenyi Fellowship, 2006 János Bolyai research fellowship, 2007 Lajos Jánossy award by the Eötvös Loránd Physical Society, 2008 Outstanding Referee of the American Physical Society
