Dan Reynolds is a faculty research assistant at the University of Maryland. He collaborates with beekeepers as the co-head of the Sentinel Apiary Program, as well as processes samples for the Bee Informed Partnership and APHIS National Honey Bee Survey. He also handles administrative work to help run the Honey Bee Lab and coordinate BIP Tech Teams. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art from University of Maryland Baltimore County, but later became interested in bees and hasn’t looked back. He enjoys field work and hands-on bee experience, and hopes to keep some colonies of his own as soon as he can. He joined BIP in 2016 hoping to help sustain honey bee health on a national scale by working closely with beekeepers to improve colony health and management.
