Research:

Earlier:

During my BSc I investigated the habitat choice of Common Sandpipers (Actitis hypoleucos) along the river Rába, between Szentgotthárd and Körmend [with Dr. István Szentirmai and Dr. András Liker].

During my MSc I investigated the effects of habitat urbanization on the breeding success of Great Tits (Parus major). Using field observations and geoinformatics, we analyzed how various environmental factors (e.g. nest height, vegetation cover, built-in areas, roads) affect occupancy of nest-boxes and number of fledged chicks [with Dr. Veronika Bókony].

Currently:

I am investigating that (1) do Great Tits nesting in forest and urban habitats differ in the amount and composition of food for their nestlings and (2) what anthropogenic environmental effects cause these differences. Furthermore, I would like to investigate foraging behavior of Great Tit parents with radio telemetry.
