I'm really interested in how bees mitigate disease risk. I have done some research into both fever and corpse management in bees, a masters to develop modelling skills for my PhD, and now I'm investigating landscape epidemiology in parasites of bumblebees
Mark Brown, PI
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
Edward Carpentier, MSc student
During my masters' project, I will be exploring the impacts of pesticides and pathogens on bumblebee males. My work is part of the PoshBee project, which supports healthy bee populations across Europe.

Gail Turney, PoshBee Project Manager
My MSc explored the role of artificial bare soil scrapes as nesting habitat for solitary bees. With a background in project management I’m now part of the PoshBee project team.
Owen Vaughan, MSc student
My passion for insects led me to Royal Holloway, and my Msc will look at the effects of parasites and pesticides on bumblebee learning.
