Anna Lazar graduated from the Szeged University of Science; she recieved her first MSc in physics in 2002 and her second in computational mathematics in 2003 specialising on artificial intelligence. She started her PhD studies in 2003 at the Peter Pazmany Catholic University Faculty of Information Technology, on the field of modelling visual attention, under the supervision of Prof. Tamás Roska. She spent the spring semester of 2007 at the Leuven University as a guest lecturer. In 2007/8 she was a Ferenc Deak scholarship fellow. She defended her thesis in modelling visual attention in 2008, summa cum laude. Presently, she is a fellow of the Eotvos Lorand University of Science, Department of Biological Physics researching networks of complex systems and collective motion, under the supervision of Prof. Tamás Vicsek. Her main field of interest are biologically inspired artificial intelligence, mathematical, physical and computational models of biological and complex systems.
