Before studying bees, he received his bachelor’s degree from Indiana University Bloomington and worked with E. coli, dung beetles, sea urchins, coral, nematodes, channel catfish, and alpacas. He received his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and studied parasitism in bees using both landscape epidemiology and community ecology. Currently, Nick is studying the physiological and metabolic consequences of parasitism in squash bees.
