Her research focuses on what happens to matter when is as hot and dense as the universe was a millionth of a second after the Big Bang. Such matter is created in relativistic particle collisions in the accelerators at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Long Island, NY, and at CERN, Switzerland. She teaches physics and astronomy at Pratt.
Ágnes is an avocate for science literacy and is active in communicating science to a wide audience. She initiated a scientific visualization collaboration between Pratt Institute and Brookhaven Lab, thus educating a wider audience about cutting edge research and how this is carried out, while providing unique experiences and projects for Pratt students, as well as clear visual props for researchers to tell their story. Her first such project "The Sound of the Little Bang" was a hit featured by numerous news media www.soundofthelittlebang.com
