I started the PhD program in 2015. My research area is the econometric identification of causal effects of macroenomic policy using the generalized propensity score. Previously I had been working for the Magyar Nemzeti Bank (MNB, the central bank of Hungary) for 15 years. I started working there at the Financial Markets Department, then I moved to the Economics Department, with the main responsibility of monetary policy advice. My last position was the Director of Financial System Analysis. Currently I am a lecturer at the Corvinus University of Budapest, MNB Department. I have a course on monetary policy, and lectures on modelling at central banks.
