I have always been fascinated by science and mesmerised by electronics. Since I had access to the latter due to my Dad, I went on that path. I got my MS in EE at the Technical University of Budapest in 1985 then I worked as an R&D engineer first in Hungary then in Australia. However, science remained just as alluring as before and after all those years recently I decided to get back to the university and research the neuronal circuits behind the remarkable navigational skills and learning ability of ants.
