Since early childhood, I have been confronted with the impact of economic conditions on everyday life. I grew up in Germany in a Hungarian family and wanted to understand where the differences in these two countries come from. These different perspectives shaped my interest in economics.
Fast forward a couple of years, I am a graduate student at the Department of Economics of the University of Zurich. During my PhD, my interest shifted towards a topic that affects all countries: sustainability. First a personal passion, my interest in sustainability grew to be the focus of my research agenda. I aspire to take on a new position which allows me to pursue this agenda at my current position at the University of Stavanger.
In terms of extracurricular activities, I served as a delegate for the PostDocs and PhDs at the University of Zurich. Further, I founded and led the stress management group of the Department of Economics in Zurich which helps to improve resilience among PhD students.
