The BEE Lab
We research the Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution (BEE) of bees, including the commercial honey bee (Apis mellifera), Asian honey bees (all other Apis sp.), Australia’s social stingless bees (Tetragonula and Austroplebia sp.) and other Australian native bees. We also work on quite a few other organisms too, including mites and bee viruses, wasps, birds and more.
We combine work in both the lab (genetics and genomics) and the field (behaviour and ecology). We have a well-equipped molecular laboratory and bee house at Sydney’s Camperdown campus. We also undertake fieldwork across Australia and overseas.
If you are a student or post-docs interested in joining the lab, get in touch to discuss current opportunities.
