Dan Aurell

Dan is a third-year PhD student at Auburn University, Auburn, AL. studying Entomology. His Advisor is Dr. Geoffrey Williams.  Dan received his B.S. in Biology 2015 from Acadia University, Wolfville, NS, Canada. He was a Honey Bee Health Field Specialist (Tech Transfer Team) 2017 to 2020 with Bee Informed Partnership. Dan joined Geoff Williams’ lab at Auburn University in 2020 after six years working in commercial beekeeping and in beekeeping technology transfer.  His goal is to optimize the use of natural miticides against Varroa destructor.  He is putting to use the beekeeping experience and the connections he developed with beekeepers during that time to help solve problems that face the apiculture industry. The challenges are numerous, and hopes to help alleviate them with his dissertation work, ongoing collaborations, and future work.
