Gergely Palla has received his PhD in 2002 at the Eötvös University, the topic of his thesis involved quantum chaos, semiclassical approximation and mesoscopic systems. From 2003 he worked in the research group at the Biological Physics Department (formerly the Biological Physics Research Group, at present the Statistical and Biological Physics Research Group) . His main field of interest concerns complex networks, with a special focus on topological phase transitions, community finding (also called as network clustering), the time evolution of communities and the studies of tagged networks. During his scientific carrier he received the following prizes:Young Scientist Prize of the Hung. Acad. of Sci. (2006), Bolyai Scholarship (2008), Imre Bródi Award (2009) and Junior Prima Award (2009).
