Welcome to my homepage. I am an art historian from Budapest, Hungary, currently working at the Museum of Applied Arts. Recently I have been one of the curators of a major exhibition dedicated to King and Emperor Sigismund.

I received my PhD from Yale University, where I studied at the History of Art Department, focusing on medieval art. My dissertation is titled Art and Patronage in Medieval Hungary - The Frescoes of the Augustinian Church at Siklós (advisor: Walter Cahn). My earlier diplomas are from the Central European University (MA in Medieval Studies) and from Eötvös Loránd University (MA in Art History).
