I am interested in the cold hardiness of the insects investigating biochemical and eco-physiological background of these adaptations. My research covers the enzymes, specific proteins and cryo/anhydro protectans. I have also studied the antioxidant system and its regulative role in the different systems (insects, cell cultures) as well as the markers in eco-toxicology.

I have been involved in the biochemistry of nutrition, studying the effects of alluminosylicates in animal nutrition.
