Our lab is focused on pollinator health. Specifically:

  1. Combining empirical data with network modeling to understand pathogen transmission in complex plant-pollinator networks.
  2. Evaluating the relative importance of pesticides, pathogens, and other factors on colony performance.
  3. Understanding how pesticide and pathogen stress influence bee behavior and delivery of pollination service to agriculturally important crops.
