My research focuses on the systematics, evolution, and conservation of Asian reptiles and amphibians, particularly agamid lizards in the subfamily Draconinae in China and across the Pan-Himalaya region. 
 
Project 1: Herpetofaunal diversity of the East Himalaya
                 Explore the cryptic diversity of reptiles and amphibians along the eastern Himalaya  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
         
       
       
 
 
 
Project 2:  Systematics & Phylogeography of Japalura sensu lato 
   
      Revise the taxonomy and phylogenetic relationships of Mountain Dragons in the paraphyletic genus Japalura sensu lato. Focusing on the Chinese clade (genus Diploderma), I will then further explore the biogeographic history and speciation mechanisms of the genus in the Hengduan Mountain Region of SW China
