About me

I am a Professor of Biology at the University of Debrecen and currently serve as Head of the Department of Evolutionary Zoology and Director of the Institute of Biology and Ecology. I am a member of Academia Europaea. I have a wide ranging interest from social foraging, through parental care and cooperation to state-dependent life history theory. Through my research I try to combine theoretical and empirical approaches. Currently, my work focuses on social organisation of bird flocks, gene expression regulation of parental care in a new model system, the Lethrus apterus beetle and theoretical investigation of parental care concentrating the origin of sex role differences. I have completed several postdoctoral fellowships at abroad.
