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 after completing my PhD in summer 2021.
In terms of extracurricular activities, I serve as a delegate for the PostDocs and PhDs at my department. Further, I am the founder and leader of the stress management group of the Department of Economics which helps to improve resilience among PhD students.
