Research

Research interest

Phylogeny, historical biogeography and phylogenetic ecology of caridean shrimps. Through phylogenetic analysis based on molecular and morphological characters of selected groups of shrimps in combination with the study of their biogeographical distribution patterns and host-relations, hypothesis on the evolutionary history of these groups are formulated. Special attention is given to pontoniine shrimps. These shrimps are usually living in association with other invertebrates. The co-evolutionary component is studied by means of comparisons between phylogenetic patterns of both shrimps and hosts.
