Short CV

2006-present: Two FWF projects taken up at the Institute of Geology of the Innsbruck University. Development of the methods of isotope analyses of waters trapped in fluid inclusions in speleothems and studies of hypogene karst.

2003-2006: Research position at Museo Tridentino di Scienze Naturali (Trento, Italy). The development of new methods and techniques for the palaeo-climatic studies of speleothems.

2001-2003: By request of the Office of Attorney General of State of Nevada, with the group of co-authors from USA, UK and Russia, performed evaluation of the suitability of the U.S. proposed site for geological disposal of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

1999-2001: PI of the research project funded by Government of the State of Nevada studying the geological suitability of the proposed high-level nuclear waste disposal site in Nevada. On behalf of the State testified before the Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board and the Advisory Committee on Nuclear Waste of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

1997-1998: Served as an expert to TACIS (a EC program), assessing geological issues of the nuclear waste disposal in the north-western Russia (Novaya Zemlia archipelago).

1994-1998: Consulting the State of Nevada's Nuclear Waste Project Office and the Attorney General Office on the issues of the geological suitability of the proposed high-level nuclear waste repository site at Yucca Mountain. Submitted 19 technical reports.

1993-1994: International Scientific Fellowship Award from NSERC, Canada, taken up at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (prof D.C. Ford). Fluid inclusion and stable isotope research on speleothems from different karst areas.

1992-1993: Consulting the Hungarian National Authority for Nature Conservation on fossil hydrothermal karst systems and caves in Budapest and the Transdanubian Range.
