DUNG BEETLES - SYSTEMATICS - PHYLOGENETIC METHODS- ONTOLOGIES
I am an entomologist and evolutionary biologist whose research addresses one of the major challenges in biology - understanding the evolutionary processes that shaped the stunning diversity of organismal forms on Earth.
In my research, I employ an interdisciplinary approach that involves dung beetle systematics, statistical modeling, and development of new computational tools.
