Alexander Mikheyev

Professor, ANU Bee lab, Australian National University

I am a Russian-American evolutionary biologist, though I have spent many years working in Japan, before coming to Australia. My interests are broad, but I focus on host-pathogen evolution, particularly looking at honey bees as a model system. My recent work has focused on the impacts of Varroa mites and the viruses spread by them on honey bee populations.
