Biography

I received my PhD in Film Studies from Queen’s University, Belfast in 2013. Before that, I was a lecturer in the Department of American Studies at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary (2001-07). My areas of research interest include New Hollywood, authorship, women in film and television, and web series. I have also written and spoken on Hungarian cinema and sound and music in film. 

I am currently undertaking an IRC-sponsored two-year research fellowship at Maynooth, with a project 
entitled: Women and New Hollywood: How the Auteur Paradigm Marginalizes Women’s Creative Labour (October 2016).
