I'm an Associate Professor & Head of Department at Corvinus University in Budapest. In my current role I teach at all levels (from BA to PhD) and also supervise MA and PhD students. I am an elected member of the Senate, member of the Institute's council and the Academic Tenure and Promotion Subcommittee.
Prior to returning to my alma mater in 2021, I have been lecturing in the United Kingdom for over a decade. I received my PhD in Sociology from the Corvinus University of Budapest back in 2005, and received two prestigious postdoctoral fellowships afterwards. First, I was a Jean Monnet Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European Forum 2006-7) followed by a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Amsterdam (2007-9) where I was part of the TIES ("The European Second generation") project.
I moved to the UK in January 2010 taking up a permanent lectureship at Northumbria University where I taught at both UG & PG levels and served on the departmental research and ethics committees. During my subsequent post at Newcastle University (2013-2021) I have been the Admissions Tutor for Sociology (2017-20); convened the Power, Inequality and Citizenship research cluster (2015-17) and received the NUSU Teaching Excellence Award (Taught Supervisor of the Year 2017).
I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (2011) and an editorial board member of the British Journal of Sociology of Education (since 2017). I regularly review journal articles (e.g. American Sociological Review, Sociological Perspectives, International Migration Review, Journal of Ethnic & Migration Studies, Higher Education etc.), book proposals (Palgrave Macmillan, SAGE Publishing, Polity, Routledge) and grant applications (ESRC, Leverhulme Trust; UKRI Future Leaders) in areas closely linked to my research interests. I have been actively engaged in the Marie Curie Alumni Association where I chaired the Career Development Working Group. I am also a founding member of the EducEight Group, a network that organised a number of international workshops and conferences for PhD students & early career researchers since 2007.
