RESEARCH FOCUS

  • Research focus on pollinator health, and honey bee health specifically
  • Understanding and (importantly) improving honey bee health
  • Understanding both the etiology of individual bee diseases and the large scale monitoring of colony health
  • Identifying determinates of disease in honey bee colonies
  • Identifying and promoting management systems which promote colony health
  • Broad scale monitoring of pollinator health

I am particularly intrigued with using an epidemiological approach to understanding and (importantly) improving honey bee health. This approach is multi-faceted, requiring understanding both the etiology of individual bee diseases and the large scale monitoring of colony health.

I encourage students interested in these broad themes to contact me for M.S. and Ph.D. opportunities.
