My primary research goals include understanding taxonomy, biology and ecology of the longhorn beetles (Cerambycidae). These include their molecular phylogeny, morphological and molecular taxonomy, evolution, adaptive radiation and landscape genomics of populations, faunistic, ecological communities, influence of climate changes on native and invasive cerambycids. I’m also interested in modeling of insect ecological communities and trophic networks, insect-plant interaction, insect island biology and insect conservation.

In my Doctoral Thesis, I used an example of xylophagous insects’ communities, particularly the longhorn beetles, in forest ecosystems of the Ukrainian Carpathians Mountains. My work revealed significant changes in the structure of the longhorn beetles’ communities in response to the different ecosystem conditions including forest exploitation and natural disturbances.

My current studies are focused on revealing of phylogenetic taxonomy of the longhorn beetles as well as studying of alien invasive species.
