Community and Business

I have a keen interest in public outreach of science and education, and organise and run the various workshops held at the lab. I publish articles in a variety of journals and magazines, about our research and topics of interest to beekeepers.

I also maintain the website and social media sites for the Laboratory of Apiculture and Social Insects.
