My special scientific fields are waterbirds and limnology, especially regard to migration, nutrient cycling and trophic web relationships. I am extensively investigating the physical, chemical conditions, phytoplankton, mesozooplankton, macroinvertebrates and waterbird communities of the Eurasian salt and soda lakes/wetlands. I also have nature conservation practices in management and restoration of lakes, wetlands, grasslands as well as bird protection. I had worked at the Kiskunság National Park (Hungary) and the Birdlife Hungary Society both of more than 16 years.
