Research interests

My research is focusing on a taxonomic and systematic revision, phylogenetic reconstruction and morphological evolution in crane flies (Insecta, Diptera, Tipulidae), a diverse insect group of nearly 16, 000 species found in all zoogeographic regions. My current taxonomic expertise is subgenus Tipula (Vestiplex) Bezzi,1924, a phylogenetically young group of crane flies which includes 181 extant species which are distributed throughout the Nearctic, Palaearctic and Oriental Regions.
