In 2009-2010 I spent 8 months in Berlin (D) with the Eötvös Scholarship of the Hungarian State, where I pursued studies at Time-based Institute in the Art and Media Class at Berlin University of the Arts. In 2010 I started my doctoral studies at the Doctoral School of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest (H) and I earned my doctoral degree in Multimedia Art in 2016.
