Everything that defines me.
FROM Baden-Württemberg TO EuropE
I was born in Karlsruhe on November 8, 1979. After completing my high school education at the Thomas-Mann-Gymnasium in Stutensee, I embarked on a journey to study law in Heidelberg and Montpellier around the turn of the millennium. Subsequently, I moved to the Netherlands and continued my academic career, ultimately earning my doctoral degree in 2016. In 2021, I was appointed as a Professor of European Law at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Even after my entry into the European Parliament, I continue to teach and conduct research on a reduced scale. This ensures that I remain continually challenged by recurring encounters and critical inquiries from students and colleagues, gaining a deeper understanding of the issues that truly concern people.
Baden-Württemberg is my homeland.
I grew up in Stutensee, in the Karlsruhe area, and attended school there. My father is Hungarian, my mother is German, and my wife is Polish. I enjoy reading, playing the guitar, and, when time allows, playing volleyball. Additionally, I often travel with my sons, both of whom were born in the Netherlands. My biography reflects that I am a European at heart and I embody the European idea. Consequently, I am immensely pleased to have the opportunity to shape European politics together with you!
I am a European deep inside and live the European idea. Now I am incredibly happy to be able to help shape European politics together with you!
