Within the framework of the Scientific Circle of Veterinary Students he deals with the molecular diagnostics of viral pigeon diseases. He is the author of several reports on the Symposia Students Scientific Circles. His thesis entitled “The Use of PCR and LAMP in Molecular Diagnostics of CoHV-1 Infection in Domestic Pigeons (Columba livia var. domestica)” was awarded at the XLIII Congress of Scientific Circles in Warsaw and took the third place at the Second International Conference of the Students of Veterinary Medicine in Warsaw. In 2017, he began PhD studies in which he deals with the epidemiology of pigeon virus diseases in Poland, and diagnostics with molecular biology methods of Staphylococcus agnetis, as potential factor causing the occurrence of lameness in hen broiler flocks.
