I want to grab the individual narratives of the past, who are in the periphery of historical interest. I would like to populate the 18-century Transylvanian with their stories, which are insignificant in themselves, but expressively in their context.
Trough the history of a Transylvanian elite family in early modern age, I examine the net of people living in cousinhood and emotional bond, their strategies, relationship, and the transfer of memory between generations.
I have been dealing with families for about a decade and a half in the context of early modern social history. Actually, I do a similar job as researchers who examine contemporary society, but my interviewees' cannot be asked again.
As an archaeologist and art historian, I deal with tombstones, which tell about the identity of the deceased and patrons, their social role, relationships, values, and much more as textual, visual and material sources at the same time.
In the research team, I examine the marriages and family life of Farkas Kovacsóczy (1540-1594), Transylvanian chancellor, and I edit Latin language egodocuments (diaries and correspondences) from the 16th and 17th centuries
As an art historian, I want to understand how emotional ties between family members are reflected by their legacies of material objects, and whether family relationships highlight the provenance of objects.
I am an research-instructor at BME Department of Measurement and Information Systems. My research field is distributed intelligent systems and internet technologies, their applications in the information service.

My resrarches focus on the mentality changes, community expectations, family roles, conflicts and divorce, concubinage and civil marriage in Udvarhelyszék and the county in the 19th century, based on the reading of Protestant divorce records.
My researches focus on use of and the representation of urban space of the citizens in 19th-century Pest-Buda. In particular, I deal with the families of Júlia Szendrey and her children from two consecutive marriages by reading their egodocuments.
I study the social history of servitude and focuses on the servant-owner relationship. Their life paths are different, but there is something in common, a service as a common past and an ambivalent relationship with the master.
