we study interfaces between ecology, evolution and development, to establish a solid knowledge base for biodiversity conservation

- Main Objective -
Organisms come into being, develop, survive and reproduce, often giving rise to new lineages while interacting with the abiotic and biotic elements on Earth. Studying the interfaces between ecology, evolution and development provides exciting new opportunities in understanding patterns and processes of generation of biodiversity and processes of the web of life. Such knowledge provides the most stable platform to conserve biodiversity. We use multiple approaches in our analyses: molecular systematics, genomics, environmental and ancient DNA, morphology and morphometrics, bioacoustics, imaging, ecological modeling and many techniques in developmental biology. Though we do not emphasize on a study group, our lab has studied mostly amphibians and freshwater fishes, and we work mostly on Old World fauna.
