Current PhD student


A PhD research student, specialising in culture in sustainable development. My previous studies includes studying BA in Events Management and MA in Arts, Enterprise and Development. I have a great interest in art and culture’s impact on development. My dissertation enabled me to investigate these topics in relation of my home country, Hungary. I became more interested in researching how the weak points of my own country, Hungary – namely, health and wellbeing – could be improved with various cultural practices. Hence, my master’s dissertation was entitled ‘Arts to enhance health and wellbeing in Hungary: Consideration of policy and practice to provide understanding of the current cultural policies and practices and their impacts on the health and wellbeing of the Hungarian young generation'.

Research project

  • Role of culture in sustainable urbanisation to enhance health and wellbeing in Hungary

Research overview

My research will focus on the role of culture in sustainable urbanisation to enhance health and wellbeing in Hungary. I will analyse the importance of health and wellbeing in Hungary’s sustainable urbanisation and how the integration of culture and sustainability, can provide physical, social, psychological resources for achieving ‘complete health’. My research will not only develop new knowledge; it could also offer practical solutions that provide healthy urban planning in the country or projects that could be adopted in the future, to address issues such as health and wellbeing in Hungary.
