Biography[edit]

Ágnes Szokolszky was born in an educator family, her father, István Szokolszky[1] (1915–1968) was one of the significant representatives of Hungarian pedagogy, her grandfather Rezső Szokolszky[2] held a position of instructor and royal school-inspector. For Ágnes Szokolszky it was natural to carry on the family's tradition of following a profession in education. This was also pressed by her father’s untimely death. She made her studies at the Eötvös Loránd University in English literature, history, and pedagogy specializations. After the end of her studies she started to teach at Vörösmarty Mihály Grammar School, then at the Department of Pedagogy of the Eötvös Loránd University.

She obtained her Ph.D. degree in experimental psychology at the Psychological Department of the University of Connecticut, United States. She made her PhD studies and defended her dissertation at the Center for the Ecological Study of Perception and Action (CESPA) which works as a part of the Department of Psychology, University of Connecticut.

From 1996 Ágnes Szokolszky is an instructor and researcher of the Department of Psychology, József Attila University, Szeged (from 2000 it is called University of Szeged). In 1999 she became a member of the Cognition Science Group, engaged in the Cognitive Programme of Szeged, organized by Csaba Pléh. From 2006 she is the director and associate professor of the Department of Psychology, Szeged. From 2007 she is a habilitated associate professor, from 2008 director of the Institute of Psychology, Szeged.

In connection with her fields of research she participates in numerous international and national conferences, her lectures are being published.
