Brief description of the main scopes: 

As a member of the Adaptive Neuroetological Research Group and student of the Doctoral Program in Pannon University of Veszprém, under control of the research group leader, Dr. Zsolt Pirger. My main research interest is around the effect of the anthropogenic hormone contaminations on the development of zooplankton (Daphnia magna) and aquatic invertebrate species (Limnaea stagnalis).

My aims were investigation the physiological effects of detected progestogens on zooplankton and macroinvertebrate test organism. I am looking for the answers to some questions, for example: How will change the heart rate frequency, radula movement and number of eggs after the hormone treatments? What trends can be observed in growth during development and reproduction?
