I graduated in Gender Studies at CEU in 2003. I wrote my MA thesis about gender in the school curriculum reforms of the 1990s in Slovenia and Hungary. Around that time I got involved in the Hungarian feminist and LGBT movements. In 2004 became - and I still am - a member of Labrisz Lesbian Association, and I have been doing activist work in other LGBT and women's NGOs, as well. After graduation I was working as a freelance researcher for 3 years. From 2006 to 2014 I was employed at the Department of Gender Studies at CEU as a coordinator and researcher in several EU research projects, focusing on women and the labour market, women and poverty, and women and work-life balance policies. In 2008 I started my PhD studies at the Department. My broader research interest is gender and sexuality in education; the title of my dissertation (to be defended in October 2015) is "Sexing the School. Constituting Gender, Ethnicity and Class through Discourses of Sexuality in a Hungarian Secondary School." I worked as a tutor in gender studies at the Roma Access Programs of CEU in 2012-2014. My non-academic education activities include being a volunteer facilitator in the school program "Getting to Know LGBT People", run by Labrisz and Szimpozion Association, since 2004, and being a facilitator trainer in the program since 2012. After My PhD defence I and the school nurse who was teaching in the school where I did my doctoral fieldwork are going to launch a new sex education program which we are developing together. In the Winter Semester of 2015/2016 I am teaching an MA course titled "Gender and Sexuality in Education" at the DEpartment of Gender Studies.
