Outline Activities
I'm working on taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography and biodiversity of ants in the tropical Asia; using traditional morphological analysis, molecular phylogenetic analysis, divergence time estimation, haplotype network analysis, DNA barcoding, and ordination; aims to reveal phylogeographic history, ant diversity in Asia, effects of disturbance (deforestation, plantation, fire, flood, global warming) on ant assemblages.
