Of Hungarian origin, I grew up in the french part of Switzerland around the city of Lausanne where I did my studies. I received a Master's Degree in Physics from EPFL with a focus on theoretical physics in 2014. I then joined the Laboratory of Biosensors and Bioelectronics (LBB) at ETH Zurich where I did my PhD investigating learning mechanisms in tailored 2D neuronal cultures of primary rat neurons. Most of the work involved coming up with the hardware/software in order to not only build tailored and controlled real neural networks and interact with them. I received my Phd in 2019.

I was awarded a Global Marie Curie Fellowship which funds 3 years of research. I will spend 2 years at Stanford and the last year at IIT Naples

In the scope of a Global Marie Curie Fellowship, I develop stretchable and conformable mesh-microelectrode-arrays to embed into induced pluripotent stem cell derived neural organoids. I develop the hardware and the software in order to be able to interact in a closed-loop manner with the neuronal organoid.

I am spending the first 2 years at Professor Bianxiao Cui's lab at Stanford, USA, and the 3rd year at Dr. Francesca Santoro's lab at IIT Naples.
