I specilized in tropical and subtropical brachiopods living in cryptic habitats such as representatives of the Thecideida (clade could not be found in the tree above), the genus Argyotheca and the genus Novocrania. However, I'm familiar with other Recent brachiopods as well working with one of the best collections of Recent brachiopods at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Germany.
