Taxonomy and biostratigraphy of upper Mesozoic (mainly orbitoidal foraminifera in Late Cretaceous) and Mesozoic larger Foraminifera; mainly orbitoidal forams such as orbitoids and radial groups such as orthophragmines, lepidocyclinids, miogypsinids etc.- and nummulitid larger foraminifera. Evolution and application of biometry in larger Foraminifera. 

The biogeography of larger foraminifera based on records from Europe, Indian subcontinent, central-west Africa (Ivory Coast), north Africa (Tunis and Egypt) and central America (Jamaica).
