My research are focused on taxonomy of Scirtidae (Coleoptera: Scirtoidea).

- studies of Austral Scirtidae; especially faunas of New Caledonia (with Hiroyuki Yoshitomi), New Zealand (with Agata Kiałka), and Chile (with Jaime Solervicens);
- revision of selected groups of Neotropical and Oriental Scirtidae;
- preparing world catalogue of Scirtidae (with Bernhard Klausnitzer and Hiroyuki Yoshitomi).
