Range of Research Interests

The research interests contain systematics, biogeography and paleontology of Mollusca and bioinformatics software development on phylogenetic systematics. Hooked on systematics of Mollusca, I mainly work on terrestrial snails infraorder Helicoidei including family Camaenidae using morphological and molecular methods.
