Előd Méhes earned his MSc in biology in 1996 from Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest followed by a degree in English translation and interpreting in 1997 and an ME degree in biology teaching in 2010, all from Eötvös Loránd University. He earned his PhD from the Graduate School of Veterinary Science of St. István University in 2003.
Since 2006 he has been working as Research Fellow at the Department of Biological Physics. He was member of the COLLMOT Project of Prof. Tamás Vicsek’s EU ERC Advanced Grant (2009-2014). He received Bolyai Research Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2016-2019).
