I am a historian of modern Europe, specializing in the history of sexuality and health. My research interests include the production of knowledge on sex, love and marriage; venereal disease and premarital counselling advice; race defilement and sexual racism in Hungary and Central Eastern Europe in the 20th century. A visiting lecturer in the Department of History, I am also a researcher at Masaryk University in Brno, as part of a project about expert knowledge on sexuality in Socialist countries. I teach Global Politics and English in the BME International Secondary School in Budapest.
