Welcome to Ahmad-Reza Katouzian and his wife Mona from the University of Tehran. Ahmad-Reza is investigating the biodiversity and phylogeography of Iranian amphipods in his PhD thesis. In the six month of his stay in our group he will apply genetic methods to uncover at least some the hidden mysteries of that group.
