My research is primarily focused on the taxonomy, systematics, phylogeny and evolution of oestroid flies and in particular flesh flies, woodlouse flies and bot flies.
These are small to medium-sized families, which allows me to take a global approach in my revisionary studies. Flesh flies are important decomposers, woodlouse flies are interesting for their unique association with terrestrial isopods, and bot flies are well-known for the myiasis they produce in several species of mammals, including man.

For the past 50 years the systematics and zoogeography of flower flies has been and continues to be my research focus. Flower flies are critical as pollinators, predators of plant pests and re-cyclers of environmental wastes.
While I have written about flower flies from all regions, my primary areas of interests are the New World, Australia and New Zealand. My current research projects include: Flower flies of Costa Rica; Nearctic flower flies; and Genera of flower flies.
