I am a PhD student at the Department of Economics of the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. My research interests are of the fields of Monetary Economics and International Macroeconomics. Under the supervision of Evi Pappa and Alessia Campolmi, currently I am working on optimal macro policy design in a currency union with financial frictions and liquidity trap.
Prior to joining the EUI, I have worked at the Monetary Strategy division of the central bank of Hungary preparing the interest rate decisions of the Monetary Council and contributing to the quarterly forecasts of the bank. I also worked for OGResearch, a macroeconomic consultancy involved in macro forecasting for developing countries as well as assisting the central banks of these countries in monetary regime changes or capacity building in modelling, in collaboration with the IMF.
I hold an MA degree in Economics from the Central European University in Budapest and two BA degrees from the Corvinus University of Budapest, in Applied Economics and in Finance & Accounting. For a semester I attended Macroeconomics courses at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. During my university studies I was also a member of the Rajk László College in Budapest.
