I did my PhD on ants with Deborah Gordon, and a post-doc on bumblebee parasites with Paul Schmid-Hempel. Since 2002 I've led my own lab, first at Trinity College Dublin, and now at RHUL

My PhD is focused on the effects of pesticides on bumblebees. My work is part of the PoshBee project, which supports healthy bee populations across Europe.
Morgan Morrison, PhD student
During my PhD I will be exploring pathogen spillover from honey bees to wild bees in conservation sites, and the potential impacts of citizen science to mitigate drivers of bee declines as part of the Safeguard project
