Ferenc graduated with a B.Sc. in Computer Science and an M.Sc. in Physics at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) in Budapest, Hungary. He earned his Ph.D. at the Eötvös Loránd University under the supervision of István Groma with a research topic at the intersection of statistical physics and materials science. He was a postdoctoral research fellow with Michael Zaiser at the University of Edinburgh and, again, with István Groma at the Eötvös Loránd University. He then worked in industrial research and development on laser scanning microscopy targeting neural tissue, giving him the first glimpse into neuroscience.
Ferenc joined the Computational Systems Neuroscience Lab in 2020. He is currently working on hierarchical probabilistic models of the ventral visual pathway.
