1992 – M.Sc. (forestry, specialization in forest protection) – Moscow Institute of Forestry and Wood Technology, Russia (currently Moscow State Forest University).
2001 – Ph.D. (forestry) – Forest Research Institute, Poland (the thesis titled "The role of parasitoids in suppression of the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.) populations in the Biebrza National Park", in English).
2011 – Dr hab. (forestry) – Forest Research Institute, Poland (the habilitation thesis titled "Prediction and control of the nun moth Lymantria monacha L. (Lepidoptera, Lymantriidae)" - see BOOKS).
AREA OF RESEARCH INTEREST
- Population dynamics of forest defoliators, mainly Lymantria
monacha and L. dispar.
- Modelling and prediction of occurrence of forest pests, mainly
- Resistance of forest trees (mainly the Scots pine) to insect
- Pheromones and other semiochemicals in forest protection.
- Natural enemies of defoliators with a focus on parasitoids of L. dispar and L. monacha.
