Bio

Laura is an undergraduate student at University of California, Davis pursing a major in Entomology. She is currently in her Junior year and her interest in honey bees has only enhanced since joining the lab. Laura took an Entomology class in Davis and assisted with her brother’s beekeeping career - and she was hooked on insects and especially honey bees. Her goal is to expand knowledge in beekeeping and the biology of honey bees to share and help other beekeepers. Since joining the lab Laura has learned so much about social behaviors of bees, bee biology, health and bee breeding in E. L. Niño Lab and she is excited to work and share her passion "with an amazing team that is extremely dedicated".
