Member of the Committee on Materials Science and Technology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
She was instrumental in introducing the industrial applications of computed tomography and in developing its methodology.
Her main research interests are: random systems, simulations of graphene structures and the study of their self-organizing behaviour, energy calculations of nanotechnological grinding mills. Most of her internationally recognised achievements are in these fields: 1 patent, 70 journal articles, a few hundred references (detailed in MTMT). She is the supervisor of several PhD students. She has played a leading role in helping her university department to develop successful research project proposals and win Hungarian and EU funding.
