I am bi and I am an ethologist.//


I’ve studied Natural Sciences and I’m about to finish my Ph.D. in Ethology. I also work as a research assistant at the ELTE University of Budapest, Department of Ethology and at the moment, my research is mainly focused on dogs’ cognitive and communicative skills and development.
I’m generally interested and I worked mostly with canines (ecology, behaviour, personality etc.) but I’m considering extending my interest to other species.

I came out when I was 27 and I never really had a queer role model. Even though I work in a very open-minded environment, I still struggle a bit to openly discuss my sexuality at work.
