Pablo Goloboff works on phylogenetic theory and methods, as well as on methods for historical biogeography.  His most important contribution is probably in the computer program for phylogenetic analysis, TNT.  He has also made significant contributions to systematic theory, with new methods for tree-searching, character weighting, measures of group support, techniques for consensus and supertrees, and other aspects related to systematic practice.
