further relevant information regarding accreditation (in Hungarian)
My biological control research experience on the agricultural insect pests e.g. through parasitoids or entomopathogenic nematodes. I develop and manage collaborative international projects in the mass production and use of biological control as a component of integrated pest management. I have supervised international BSc, MSc and PhD students (e.g. Uni Godollo, Hungary; ETH Zurich & Uni Neuchatel, Switzerland; Uni Szeged, Hungary; Uni Kiel, Germany; Uni Nice, France)
