Affiliated to research
I graduated from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics with a Master in Bioengineering. During my PhD studies I have focused on the evolution of Newcastle disease virus strains of different bird host species at the Veterinary Medical Research Institute (Budapest, Hungary) and Eötvös Loránd University, Doctoral School of Biology (Budapest, Hungary). I conducted postdoctoral research, and later worked as an assistant professor at Karolinska Institutet with Prof. Angelica Lindèn Hirschberg. During these times I studied the effect of the hormonal milieu of polycystic ovary syndrome on the differentiation of endometrial stromal cell in relation to the increased risk of subfertility and pregnancy complications in these women. I also collaborated with Prof. Eva Klein and Prof. Leif Stenke at Karolinska Institutet, focusing on Burkitt`s lymphoma and chronic myeloid leukemia. Since September 2021 I work as a research specialist at the National Pandemic Centre at Karolinska Institutet, aiming at responding to the challenges of the current SARS-CoV-2 and possible future pandemics.
