Ágnes Melinda Kovács

Associate Research Fellow

I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology at the Babes-Bolyai University Cluj Napoca, Romania in 2000, followed by an MA degree from the same university in 2002. In 2008 May i have received a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, from SISSA, Trieste, Italy (Advisor Prof. Jacques Mehler). From 2007 till 2010 I was a Marie Curie research fellow in the DISCOS project at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest and a research fellow at the CEU Cognitive Development Centre. Currently I am a research fellow at the CEU Cognitive Development Centre.
