My research interests center around the evolution and ecology of reproductive systems (e.g. monogamy, polygamy, inbreeding, parthenogenesis) and insect biodiversity. I study these topics using bark beetles (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Scolytinae) and pinhole borers (Coleoptera, Curculionidae,Platypodinae).
