Research Topics

Prof. Zoltan Fodor received his PhD from the Eotvos Lorand University Budapest. His early career included several years of research at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland), DESY (Hamburg, Germany), KEK (Tsukuba, Japan) and Eotvos Lorand University (Budapest, Hungary). In 1998 he became a professor at the Lorand Eotvos University, Budapest, Hungary. In 2003 he moved to the University of Wuppertal, Germany. In 2020 he joined the Pennsylvania State University, USA. Since 2005 he has been the spokesperson of the Budapest-Marseille-Wuppertal (BMW) Collaboration.
