Prof. Horányi received an M.S. degree in Nuclear Physics in 1980, and a Ph.D. in Space Physics in 1982, both at the Loránd Eötvös University, in Budapest, Hungary. He held research positions at the Central Research Institute for Physics, Budapest from 1982-1984, at the University of Michigan in 1985, at Florida State University from 1985-1989, and at the University of Arizona from 1989 to 1992. He joined the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in 1992, and the Physics Department in 1999 at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His research interests include theoretical and experimental investigations of space and laboratory dusty plasmas, electrodynamic processes and their role in the origin and evolution of the solar system, and the development of space instrumentation.

Prof. Horányi is the author of over 170 scientific papers. He is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the American Geophysical Union.
