I am fascinated by the ways parasites behave as they parasitize their hosts, the ways hosts behave to fend off their parasites, and the ways parasites can change the behavior of their hosts. My thesis work is focusing on both the behavior of the honey bee parasite Varroa destructor and the behaviors of bees that help them defend against this parasitic mite.
