 Research Interests: I have a long-term interest in and extensive knowledge of Solifugae worldwide. Since 1993, I published 11 papers dedicated to the taxonomy and zoogeography of solifuges. I traveled to and studied the solifuge collections of 6 major European and Russian museums and examined solifuge materials loaned from 23 other American, European and Asian museum collections. I have accumulated a large collection of solifuges, including 116 species and about 2000 specimens, obtained through fieldwork and exchanges with foreign colleagues. I have personally collected solifuges in several countries in the Palaearctic region, including Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and the United Arab Emirates.
