Brief description of the main scopes: 

His research addresses questions concerning systematics, biodiversity, phenotypic plasticity and social parasitism across a broad array of ant taxa, using state-of-the-art morphometric and molecular techniques. He places heavy emphasis on generating large datasets to achieve robust results via quantitative analyses in order to answer specific questions: to what extent morphological distances correlate with phylogenomic distances (i.e., with the reproductive isolation) and where does one species begin and another end?
