I have broad interests in genomics and the integration of multiple aspects of bee biology, including immunity, pathogen/parasite interactions, development, and behavior. Currently, I am measuring US prevalence and distribution of novel viruses previously identified in bee communities across the globe. I am also working with members of the Rasgon lab to develop generalized genome editing methods in arthropods. Future work will investigate the evolution of viral strains and viral selection within hosts and parasitic vectors.
