Megan Taylor earned her MS degree at the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) under the advisement of Dr. Ernesto Guzman. Her Master's thesis was focused on improving techniques for the cryopreservation of honey bee germplasm, and it was during that time that Megan fell for the honey bee. She is presently obtaining her PhD at Washington State University (Pullman, WA) with Dr. Walter S. Sheppard as her advisor. Her current research is focused on assessing the genetic diversity of Old World honey bee populations as a potential resource for U.S. bee breeding efforts. Megan is delighted to be one of the recipients of the Foundation's scholarship and looks forward to participating in this year's conference.
