Gerald Durrell and David Attenborough both greatly influenced my career

During my childhood I was already fascinated by nature: the world of animals, plants and fungi. I am currently a member of the MTA-DE Lendület Functional and Restoration Ecology Research Group at Debrecen University, Hungary. I work there as a public outreach expert and research associate and I am teleworking from Budapest, the capital of Hungary. My other part-time job is at Herman Ottó Institute Nonprofit Ltd., where I work as a nature conservation expert. I also work as a photo journalist for the Hungarian language National Geographic and You can find some of my articles here and here. My scientific research deals with the reintroduction of endangered animals. I am proficient in English and French – I also understand a bit of Italian and German.

In my logo you can see a European mudminnow, because I am participating in the conservation of this species.
