Biography:

I have been working as a PhD student at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Budapest since 2021, under the co-direction of Dr András Gáspárdy. My work is mainly focused on farm animals. Currently, I am conducting extensive studies to preserve the original traits of the domestic racka ewe sheep varieties and to maintain their genetic diversity, as well as basic physiological research in the sheep species, which is useful in the fields of reproductive biology and obstetrics.

In addition to farm animals, companion animals are of course an integral part of my interests, with a particular focus on cats.

Scientific degree: PhD in progress

Main research areas:

1) to perform a full pedigree analysis of the domestic racka sheep (Hortobágyi Hungarian racka and Gyimesi racka),

2) to determine the maternal genetic background of Hungarian racka sheep based on the mtDNA control region,

3) monitoring blood plasma melatonin levels in ewes at different stages of gestation and at lambing.
