Heather has been a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wellesley College in Massachusetts since 2009. At Wellesley, her research continues to focus on mechanisms of social communication and organization, including honey bee behavior, the chemical ecology of colonies, the microbiology of queens and workers, and impact of nutritional stress on workers. Recently, her work has expanded to examine these topics in bumblebees, Asian honey bees, and hornets. Heather’s research program is supported by a dedicated group of Wellesley students, collaborations with colleagues from universities across North America, and by many colonies of bees that her lab maintains on the Wellesley College campus.
