Project title: The Evolution and Ecology of Invasive Apis cerana

Research Interests: Any time that a population expands range a series of genetic processes influence these “invaders”. However, despite range expansions being extremely common in the history of life, little work has been done to describe the population dynamics of invasive species. I am interested in quantifying these invasion dynamics, using Australia’s newly invasive population of A. cerana.

Project title: Venereal pathogens of honey bees: first thorough survey of Apis mellifera infectious reproductive diseases

Research Interests: I am interested in reproduction and breeding in honey bees. As a vet, I am also interested in diseases and pathology. The intersection between the two? Reproductive diseases. This is an under-studied field in honey bees, and I seek to explore the diversity and prevalence of reproductive pathogens in this species.
