Born in Budapest, Hungary.
I received two M.A. degrees at ELTE University in 2005 (American Studies and Political Science) and an M.A. degree in History at the Central European University in Budapest in 2006. My theses were related to denazification in the American zone of Germany and to the history of the German Green Party. Subsequently, I worked at various places as a teacher, translator and policy analyst. In 2009 I returned to academia with a PhD project in the History Department of the Central European University, focusing on marriage counselling and pre-marital medical examinations in interwar and post-WWII Hungary. I am a visiting PhD student at Durham doing research on transfers and links between the German speaking lands and Hungary with regard to discourses and legislation on VD and marriages.
