 Brief description of your activity focus
Analysis of large-scale comparative datasets focusing on social inequalities and attitudes toward political preferences

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a quantitative researcher in social sciences with particular preferences for research issues in sociology and political science. My research interest focuses on social inequalities from an objective (factual) and subjective (attitudinal) perspective.
I have experience with working on large-scale comparative datasets dealing with research questions on social stratification, educational inequalities, life course transitions. The datasets I have recently worked with include PISA, Eurostat’s AES, and data from graduate surveys like Reflex and Hegesco.
I am also interested in analyzing public opinion questions and attitudes toward political preferences. The datasets I have recently worked with include ESS and ISSP. I worked as the national coordinator of ISSP and ESS in Hungary; now I am representing Hungary in the SAB of ESS. I have analyzed attitudes toward social inequalities and political participation.
