I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology at the University of Copenhagen. I have an MA in Psychology from ELTE Budapest mentored by Ildikó Király, and a PhD in Cognitive Science at the Central European University which I did under the supervision of Ágnes M. Kovács and Gergely Csibra. I was a PostDoc with George Gergely and then with Victoria Southgate.
Most of my work concerns early social cognition. I am interested in the cognitive mechanisms contributing to the highly social nature of humans, how these develop early on, their interactions with different domains such as perception and memory, and how and whether they show continuity into adulthood. I am particularly drawn to developmental questions in ontogeny as well as phylogeny, because it enables us to address the foundation and emergence of the phenomena we know about ourselves as human adults.
