Educational history

  1. Agric. in Crop Production and Protection, Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria

Current Research

Stephen’s current research project is on the effect of increased CO2 on varroa mites on honey bee colonies in indoor storage. He is looking at a non-chemical approach to controlling varroa mites in honey bee colonies. Honey bees produce high CO2 in their colonies. So, he is looking at how the accumulation of CO2 in honey bee colonies in indoor storage can control varroa mites.

Future goals

His future goals are to continue working on integrated pest management of insect pests through a Ph.D. program and then after work in the industry.
