My goal is to foster a lab environment where we work collaboratively to answer important questions, where each individual is able to chart their own path while contributing to the whole. Where we get to think big and do cool science and (usually) have fun doing it. The lab values and benefits from diverse perspectives. Having forged a somewhat meandering and non-traditional path to academia, I respect and appreciate the same in others.
We are fortunate to be a part of the amazing Centre for Bee Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation (BEEc) at York, which offers great opportunities to collaborate with other researchers studying bees and grow our professional network.
