Additional Information

My research focuses on how an animal’s experience of the social and ecological environments interacts with its physiological and cellular biology to contribute to the development, plasticity, and function of naturally occurring social behaviors. My research program focuses on the molecular, systemic, and ecological physiology of honeybee behavior. There are three main areas of research in my lab: circadian rhythms and behavioral endocrinology of insects; ecological genomics of honeybee stress and aging; and applied research on the honeybee disease American Foulbrood.
