Read his interview:

When Martin started his Széll Kálmán Fellowship with us back in 2018, he was halfway through his Master’s program at the Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs. He was a scholar of international energy policy, with a genuine interest in the oil and natural gas markets, as well as renewable energy policies. Martin’s internship experiences at the time included the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, ExxonMobil, and MET.

His fellowship through The Fund for American Studies’ Summer program in Washington DC consisted of taking two courses at George Mason University. He also completed an internship at LNG Allies, a Washington-based non-profit, which unites and leads the U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) community.

Following the completion of my studies at the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po in July 2019, Martin has begun his full-time professional career. He is working as an Accredited Parliamentary Assistant (APA) for MEP András Gyürk in the European Parliament focusing on the policies covered by the Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy.
