MORE ON PROFESSOR NIEH:
In 2000, he joined the faculty in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of California San Diego where he is currently a professor in the Section of Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution. Dr. Nieh’s interests focus on bee communication, cognition, and health. He studies many types of social bees, including honey bees, bumble bees, and stingless bees. His lab studies foraging and communication in honey bees and honey bee health. The research on honey bee health focuses on how neonicotinoid pesticides alter honey bee behavior and learning, how a common pathogen, Nosema ceranae, infects bees and alters their behavior, and how honey bee immunity can be boosted to fight Nosema infection.
