Gergo Zavecz (MA 2010-2011, PhD 2011-2017)
Junior Research Fellow, Central Bank of Hungary
"My time at CEU was remarkable in so many aspects: I was a CEU student when I did my first empirical research, when I first received a research grant, when I first published in a journal, when I was first asked to write a book chapter and when I went to my first international academic conference. The technical training, the teaching experience, the possibilities to participate in various research projects, the academic thinking I gained through my courses have all contributed to my later career and to the fact that I do not feel lost no matter what kind of research I have to work on. Since my times at CEU I have left academia and the field of political science, but the knowledge I received there, remains, and for that reason CEU will always have a special place in my heart."
