Christina Grozinger’s work seamlessly integrates research, education and outreach related to the biology, health and conservation of pollinators, particularly honey bees and bumble bees. Her research uses integrative approaches encompassing genomics, physiology, behavior, chemical ecology and ecology. Her studies test and elaborate fundamental principles in animal behavior, evolutionary biology, disease ecology and landscape ecology. These studies have led to multiple new avenues of inquiry and provided critical knowledge that can be deployed to improve conservation of pollinators and their ecosystems.
