After finishing an MSc Mathematics with Teaching degree at Bolyai Institute, University of Szeged (Hungary), I started doing research in semigroup theory under the supervsion of Prof Maria Szendrei which led me to complete a PhD degree at the University of St Andrews in 2005 under the supervision of Prof Nik Ruskuc. Subsequently, I was a visiting researcher at Heriot-Watt University and at the University of Glasgow before securing a Research Associate position in the Management Science Department at the University of Strathcylde, where I taught undergraduate and postgraduae classes and started doing research in the area of combinatorial optimization.
I joined the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as a Teaching Associate in 2013. I teach a wide range of undergraduate classes and supervise fourth year projects. My current responsibilities include convening the Athena SWAN self-assessment team, second year co-ordination, MM117 class co-ordination and supporting students in the organisation of the Department's Alumni networking event. As a STEM Ambassador, I am also very keen to promote mathematics in primary and secondary schools and deliver outreach activities.
I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
