I’m a Software Engineer from Colombia, currently located in Mexico City. I received my master’s degree at Grand Valley State University (Michigan), where I had the opportunity of working on BIP’s hive scales project for several years during my studies and thesis work of a web-based, medical image tagging tool. Before BIP, I had not paid much mind to bees mostly because they weren’t on my radar. Only now can I realize how much I had been missing. Learning about them, and working alongside “Bee People” has been a fascinating journey which I hope I’ll be able to continue for a long time.

The Bee Informed Partnership is a collaboration of efforts across the country from some of the leading research labs and universities in agriculture and science to better understand honey bee declines in the United States. Supported by the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, we’re working with beekeepers to better understand how we can keep healthier bees. The key to our success is the true partnership we maintain across a wide range of disciplines including traditional honey bee science, economics, statistics, and medical research that makes all these tools available to this important research. And just as important as the tools are the people. We not only have the leading researchers in the honey bee industry, we also have advisory boards from the commercial beekeeping industries, almond and other commercial growers, as well as naturalists and conservationists from across the country.
