I am interested in how environmental stressors impact insect fitness.  I am particularly interested in determining how temperature and nutritional stress during development affect the adult phenotype, and what molecular and physiological mechanisms mediate the responses to these stressors. Bees experience many potential stressors during agricultural management and in response to climate change.  Understanding how we can protect against these stresses will help build resilient populations.
