I was born on May 4, 1967 in Budapest. I began my studies at Szent István University in 2004, where I received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Wildlife Management in 2008 and 2010 respectively. In 2019, I obtained a PhD degree at the University of Sopron.

Since 2017, I have been working full-time at the University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest, at the Department of Exotic Animal and Wildlife Medicine. Since 2002, I have also been working at the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden, where I currently work part-time as a research associate. In addition, as of 2015, based on the license issued by the National Inspectorate for Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation, I am one of the experts in the wildlife protection sub-field of the nature conservation field.

At the University of Veterinary Medicine, I currently teach courses in the topics of hunting zoology, hunting ecology, hunting history, alien and invasive species, and the biology of venomous snakes. Between 2013 and 2018, I taught the subject “Invasion of vertebrate species: effects and examples” at Szent István University.

From 1999 to 2005, I served as a member of the editorial board of the Terrarium Magazine, and since 2009, I have been a member of the editorial board for Biharean Biologist, as well as since 2010, for the South-Western Journal of Horticulture, Biology, and Environment.

I have been a member of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Herpetologie und Terrarienkunde since 1994, the Österreichische Gesellschaft für Herpetologie from 1996 to 2006, and the Terrariengemenschaft Berlin from 1998 to 2003 and again since 2019. Additionally, I have been a member of the Hungarian Ornithological and Nature Conservation Society and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences since 2019.

Throughout my career, I have published more than 100 scientific articles and authored several textbooks and book chapters.
