Systematics and Taxonomy of the Membracidae tribe Darnini. I am interested in integrative taxonomy using morphological, molecular, and biogeographical data to understand the evolution of this group.

My research explores the biodiversity hotspots of the tropics. I am most interested in the drivers of speciation and genetic, functional and morphological diversity.

Organismal model: Aeshnidae
Manpreet's research involves better understanding how historical events have determined biogeographical patterns. On an organismal level, she wants to know how large scale climatic changes have driven biogeographical evolution of the strongest dragonfly fliers-Aeshnidae.
