I am a Russian-American evolutionary biologist, though I have spend many years working in Japan, where I am also the head of the Ecology and Evolution Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University. I am currently on a Future Fellowship at ANU.

Research interests

My major research interests include using historical material to understand how evolution takes place and how complex phenotypes evolve. I am particularly fond of social insects as models, though I have worked on a variety of systems, from fruit flies to snakes, to coral.
