  • Field biology

Research

Chrysomelidae (∼40000 species) forms one of the largest radiations of animals, and they present many interesting research problems. The significant gap in knowledge of chrysomelid evolutionary relationships motivates my effort to collect the total data of individual species, develop character hypotheses that can be tested in phylogeny reconstruction, and help build strong classifications. My approach is holistic, with extensive fieldwork to explore life histories, ecology, behavior, and laboratory study of morphology and molecules.

Research Interests

  • Biology and systematics of chrysomelidae, particularly Cassidinae (beetles)
  • Immature stages of Chrysomelidae, particularly Cassidinae
  • Biology and diversity of insects
  • Ethno-entomology
  • Fossil insects.
