Expertise
Systematics, taxonomy, and evolution of terrestrial arthropods with an emphasis on arachnids and myriapods (specifically spiders and millipedes). We employ molecular, morphological, and ecological approaches to study questions related to evolutionary diversification at multiple hierarchical levels (populations – higher taxa).
