I am a postdoc since August 2020 in molecular biology focusing mainly on dry lab work, however I love to carry out wet lab tasks also that are necessary to study host-pathogen interactions. My research focus is to understand more about the mechanisms behind the persistent bacterial infection. I am mostly doing dry lab work such as NGS data and recently transcriptomic data analyses. I am mainly working with Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium to study its invasion and persistence. I am also interested about Yersinia pseudotuberculosis invasion and persistence in the host.

I have a diverse background, in my former group at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, my main role was to handle the bioinformatics part of our NGS service. Meanwhile, I completed my Ph.D. on the topic of molecular epidemiology of rabies in Hungary using molecular epidemiological and evolutionary methods to study spatial dispersion on RABV and EBLV inside and between countries, with the focus on the recent Hungarian outbreak.
