My family and myself

After spending two postdoc terms at ASU I returned to Hungary where I am professor at the University of Pannonia in Veszprem. I teach environmental science and chemistry majors and try to adapt to the ever-changing environment of the Hungarian education system. When I was at ASU I started to study magnetic minerals that form inside magnetotactic bacteria. My main research interest is still biominerals and also atmospheric aerosol particles. My daughter Susie (20) is studying political science in Paris, daughter Orsi (19) is a first-year student in Russian literature at Eotvos University, Budapest, and son Pisti (14) is in highschool in Veszprem. We live at Lake Balaton, which is excellent for swimming in summer and skating in winter. The region has good wine, so any 7*Mer visiting Hungary should drop in and is welcome for a drink and a tour of the neighborhood.
