C:\> Biography

I was born in the year 1999 in Lučenec (Losonc), in the Slovak Republic. Although my citizenship is Slovak my nationality is Hungarian. I took part in numerous science contests since primary school. I went to middle school in Fiľakovo (Fülek) which town is my current place of residence. I am grateful for my math skills to my mother who is a mathematics teacher in primary school and equally grateful to my father for my programming skills who is working as a software developer. During the middle school years of my life, I was focused on playing the piano. My efforts in the field of music were acknowledged in multiple regional and countrywide competitions. After middle school, I decided to continue my studies in Hungary. At the beginning of the year 2023, I earned a bachelor's degree in computer engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. In my B.Sc. thesis, I wrote about my volumetric rendering software, which is capable of visualizing CT, MRI, or other 3D datasets. As an undergraduate student, I gained work experience by working at Tata Consultancy Services for 8 months. I also worked as a teaching assistant at the university. In 2021 I reached III. placement at the universities Scientific Students' Associations Conference for the work Visualization of relativistic phenomena. I also gave a presentation about this work at the GrafGeo scientific conference in 2022. Later in 2022, I reached first place at the Functional Programming in C++ student contest held at the university. Currently, I am pursuing a master's degree at the same institution. During the M.Sc. program, my main specialization is in the field of visual informatics and my secondary specialization is quantum informatics.
