Basic scientific achievements

In 1987 has passed training course on biochemistry department of the MSTTI in Moscow. In 1989 participated with the report in Х congress of the All-Union Entomological Society in the city of St.-Petersburg.

The active composer of recommendations on theme "Measures for American fall webworm control" (2001), "Measures for gypsy moth control in the forests of the Greater Caucasus of Azerbaijan", presented to the Ministry of Agriculture of Azerbaijan, Station of Plants Protection and the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan (2005-2010).

The executor of 8 thematic works. Complex parasites of the American fall webworm and their bioecological features are investigated for the first time in Azerbaijan. Numerical change of population of the American fall webworm is defined and 9 primary parasites are revealed and their influence on a physiological condition of the host population is studied. For last years (2006-2014) 72 species of ground beetles (Carabidae) have been revealed in Azerbaijan. From which 9 species and genus Anchomenus are recorded for the first time for Azerbaijan fauna. Ecological indices are defined for some ground beetles. Reduction of areas of Carabus, Calosoma genera under the influence of anthropogenous factors has been registered as a result of work.

Participated in the following projects:

She was the coordinator and the principle investigator of the project: “Gypsy moth, its natural enemies and host plants in Azerbaijan” supported by US Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) (BGP), (2008-2010), one of the principle investigators of the project “Bioecology and natural enemies of some lepidopterans (gypsy moth and lackey moth) outbreaking in the forests of Azerbaijan” supported by Scientific and Technological Center in Ukraine (STCU) (2008-2010),Project Manager State of Entomofauna Along the Pipeline Baku-Tbilisi-Jeyhan (Azerbaijan Territory)( 2010-2013)
