Professor Bae has published extensively on the taxonomy and ecology of mayflies (Ephemeroptera) and is one of the leading experts in the field. His special interest is in the burrowing mayflies but his research interests are broad, ranging from the Systematics, Ecology, Biogeography and Evolution of Ephemeroptera to aquatic insect biodiversity, stream ecology and conservation biology.
Dr Nguyen has worked extensively on the taxonomy of the mayflies and aquatic insect communities of Vietnam. He also is Head of the Department of Invertebrate Zoology at Hanoi University.
