Zoltán Fehér has joined the Alpine Land Snail Working Group in 2014 as a project researcher. Before that, he worked in the Hungarian Natural History Museum (Budapest) as the curator of the Mollusc Collection. He is interested in systematics, phylogeny, biogeography and conservation genetics of terrestrial and freshwater molluscs. During the past more than two decades he has organized and participated in several zoological fieldtrips in Southern Europe and Western Asia with the main focus on the Balkan countries.

Zoltán Fehér initiated the currently running project ’Speciation in rock-dwelling land snails: Understanding the origin of diversity using Montenegrina as a model system’ (FWF P 26581-B25). He took a significant part in planning the project and is the principal investigator in this study. Furthermore, he contributed to the study of the phylogeny of Ariantinae and is involved in other studies related to Carpathian, Balkan and Alpine molluscs.
