Dr. Jennifer Tsuruda joined the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology in February 2019 as an Assistant Professor and Apiculture Extension Specialist, with interests in bee health and management. Prior to joining UT, she was the Apiculture Specialist at Clemson University, a postdoctoral researcher at Purdue University (Dr. Greg Hunt’s lab), and received my Ph.D. at UC Davis under the advisement of Dr. Robert Page. Dr Tsuruda worked on associations between foraging behavior, sensory responsiveness, and reproductive physiology in honey bees, as well as breeding for and genetically mapping behavioral resistance against parasitic Varroa mites. At UT, she coordinates the Tennessee Master Beekeeping Program, and participates in field days and other Extension programming for stakeholders and agents.
She will be speaking on Pesticides and Bees. This will be a Zoom Meeting only.
