Taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of the anomuran crustaceans (mainly include Galatheoidea, Chirostyloidea, Lithodoidea and Hippoidea). My current research focuses on the biodiversity and biogeography of squat lobsters from chemosynthetic habitats in the deep West Pacific Ocean. The research work is now supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and National Key R&D Program of China.
