Zoltán Erdélyi graduated with an M.S. degree in physics from the Lajos Kossuth University (Debrecen, Hungary) in 1998. He received a Ph.D. degree in materials science from the Université Aix-Marseille III (Marseille, France) in 2001 and in physics from the University of Debrecen (Debrecen, Hungary) in 2002. He completed his Habilitation at the University of Debrecen in 2010. Since 2002, Erdélyi has worked at the Department of Solid State Physics of the University of Debrecen. In 2006 and 2009, he worked as an Invited Professor at the Université Paul Cézanne (Marseille, France) and the University of Münster (Münster, Germany), respectively. In 2010, he was an Invited G-COE Researcher at Kumamoto University—Shock Wave and Condensed Matter Research Center (Kumamoto, Japan). From 2009, he is the Secretary of Committee on Solid-State Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He is a Member of the Committee on Physics of the Hungarian Scientific Research Fund (OTKA) from 2008, the Hungarian Synchrotron Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences from 2007, and the Committee on Solid-State Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences from 2005. In addition, he works as a Member of the Editorial Board of The Open Surface Science Journal. He is (co)author of about 80 papers in international journals (Science, PRL, Acta Materialia, APL, Scripta Materialia, and PRB), numerous chapters in books and 50 talks at conferences/workshops (numerous invited). His research activity covers areas ranging from experiments (AES, XPS, XRD, synchrotron, and neutron facilities) to theory and computer simulations (atomistic and continuum models, calculation of Auger spectra and X-ray/neutron diffraction patterns, and X-ray standing wave filed).
