Mate Csanad started his university studies at the University of Innsbruck (Austria), and after coming home to Hungary, he obtained a Physics MSc degree at the Eötvös University in 2004. He pursued his graduate studies at the Stony Brook University (NY, USA) and at the Eötvös University, where he graduated (obtained his PhD) in 2007. Interrupted by several semesters spent at CERN and at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, he is a researcher and lecturer at the Eötvös University since his PhD, where he also habilitated in 2013. His interests focus on high energy heavy ion physics, hyrodynamic modeling of the quark gluon plasma, quantumstatistical correlations and the femtometer spacetime structure of the quark matter.

He is member of the PHENIX and STAR experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. He leads the PHENIX/STAR-Hungary group, and is member of the MTA-ELTE CMS "Lendület" Research Group.

He was awarded six times with diplomas at the International School of Subnuclear Physics, by the diploma committee led by Antonio Zichichi and Gerardus 't Hooft. He received a Fulbright Scholarship in 2006-07 (to study and research at the Stony Brook University and the Brookhaven National Laboratory). He also received a Bolyai Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, between 2009-2012 and 2016-2020. He won the New National Excellence Scholarship (ÚNKP/Bolyai+) multiple times since 2017. He was awarded by a HAESF Senior Leaders and Scholars Fellowship in 2014, was elected as a Fellow of the Young Academy of Europe in 2017, and received the "Promising researcher" prize of the Eötvös University in 2018.

His publications appeared among others in Physical Review Letters, Physical Review C/D, Physics Letters, Nuclear Physics and Nature Physics. He has more than 200 experimental, many-author publications, but also more than 50 few-author publications. To these he received many thousands of independent citations, in particular more than 300 for the few-author ones. He gave talks at international conferences more than 60 times.
