I am an ecologist. My main research area is the conservation ecology of birds of grasslands and farmlands, especially the European roller (Coracias garrulus). I mostly focus on the habitat and landscape level factors affecting the breeding populations and on the development of effective, evidence-based conservation measures. I am also curious about modelling changes of the breeding distribution range as well as the dispersal and migration strategies of rollers.

Besides I also take part in the work of a ringing station doing standard monitoring the breeding population and the migration pattern of small passerine species. I am a lecturer at the University of Szeged and I have participated in the development and implementation the ROLLERLIFE LIFE+ project
