My focus is systematic entomology, specializing on beetles (order Coleoptera). My thesis project is a taxonomic revision of the rove beetle genus Phlaeopterus (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Omaliinae). I am a proponent of integrative taxonomy, and I am using both morphological and molecular data in my research.
