About me:

Since September 2016 I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I am working in the fields of algebraic geometry and representation theory. My research interest includes moduli spaces, derived categories, singularity theory, Donaldson-Thomas invariants, geometric aspects of representation theory, vertex algebras and symplectic topology.

Previously, I was a PhD student in Mathematics at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. My advisors were András Némethi and Balázs Szendrői.

Before that, I studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Budapest. I wrote my Master thesis under the supervision of Gábor Etesi.

Further details can be found in my CV.
