  Welcome to my homepage, I am Előd,  
 

I live in Basel, Switzerland with my family and three children. Basel is known for art, history and big pharma. And it is also the home of bank regulation and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). This is where I work as an economist. Besides policy work and research, I am the person responsible for Central and Eastern Europe.

I came to Basel through a long journey. Was born and raised in Budapest, where lived, studied and even did some banking. I left Hungary for a PhD at Princeton University. The movie "A beautiful mind" is certainly not that innocent. After graduation started to work for the International Monetary Fund - and there I did some really long journeys.
