I'm an entomologist, working with beetle systematics. Specialist in Ciidae, currently describing new taxa from the Neotropical, Andean and Afrotropical Regions. Also revising tropical genera and species-groups.

I'm studying external morphological features in an attempt to propose a new suprageneric classification for the family Ciidae.
