About

I am interested in biodiversity (species diversity, genetic diversity, evolution, speciation, and so on) of marine meiofauna, especially Scalidophora (Kinorhyncha, Priapulida, Loricifera). To reveal that, I use several approaches such as taxonomy (both morphology and molecular based), molecular phylogeny, and phylogeography.
