Short resume: 

I received my master’s degree in psychology at Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences. As an undergraduate student I collaborated with Attila Krajcsi in the Numerical Cognition Research Group. My two main interests were the underlying mechanisms of subitizing (how we enumerate objects fast and effortlessly) and the cognitive aspects of number notations. After graduation, I joined to the Cognitive Development Center, Central European University to Ágnes Melinda Kovács’s research group. I’ve started to work with a brain imaging technique suitable for young children due to its non-invasive nature (fNIRS, Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy). In parallel I worked on behavioral and eye tracking research projects that target socio-cognitive development in infants and children (e.g., social development, learning new words in monolingual and bilingual toddlers, numerical cognition). Recently, I’ve started my doctoral studies in Cognitive Science at Central European University. My research focuses on infants’ and toddlers’ abilities of object representation (representation of absence of objects, neural correlates of object tracking and maintenance).
