Forschungsinteressen

Meine Forschungsinteressen umfassen die Taxonomie sowie die Evolution von Artendiversität und sexuell selektierten Merkmalen. Ich untersuche und beschreibe morphologische Merkmale, insbesondere von Geschlechtsorganen sowie sekundären sexuellen Merkmalen der Zwergspinnen (Linyphiidae), um die interspezifischen Beziehungen und die evolutionären Muster ihrer sexuell dimorphen Strukturen des Prosomas zu verstehen.
Außerdem beschreibe ich neue Arten von taiwanesischen Zwergspinnen. Dazu nutze ich ein breites Methodenspektrum, welches detaillierte Zeichnungen, Makrofotografie, verschiedene Vermessungen der Organismen sowie die Sequenzierung spezifischer genetischer Marker wie etwa COI und 16S umfasst.

Ziel meiner Arbeit ist es, die Biodiversitätsforschung auf dem Gebiet der taiwanesischen Zwergspinnen voranzubringen und vielfältige Fragestellungen bezüglich Ökologie, Evolution und Speziation zu bearbeiten.
