I studied between 2002-2009 biology (genetics) and archaeology (with specialization in prehistory and migration period) at the ELTE University Budapest. I become and archaeogeneticist in Mainz (Germany) where at the Johannes Gutenberg University I worked on my PhD topic of  "Population history of the Neolithic Carpathian Basin" between 2010-2013, graduated in 2015.

Since 2014 I have been working as a research fellow in the Laboratory of Archaeogenetics of the Institute of Archaeology, Research Centre of the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences that has been reorganized in 2019 under the Eötvös Loránd Research Network. 

As a head of the ancient DNA laboratory, my task is to help the project through coordinating collaborations, project planning, supervising biology students and laboratory work and helping the interdisciplinary evaluation of the results.
