Research interests:

I wrote my MsC thesis in the topic of ‘Extra-pair paternity of Tree sparrow (Passer montanus) in a semi-urban population’ in the Laboratory of Molecular Biodiversity, Institute of Genetics, Biological Research Centre, Szeged, Hungary. Later I joined the Ornithological Research Group (ORG) at the University of Pannonia (Veszprém) where I got my PhD degree in behavioral ecology. During my years as a PhD student my research interest was focused on the effects of habitat urbanization on the House sparrow (Passer domesticus), in particular its reproductive success, nestling development and anti-predator behaviour. Currently I am a research fellow in the ORG, studying how does birds’ food availability changes with habitat urbanization, and using the Great tit (Parus major) as a model species.
