My name is Tal Erez. I am in my first year as a PhD student at the Volcani Centre in Victoria Soroker lab, Israel. My work will be on the interaction between viruses, Varroa mite and a nurse honey bee.
For the last five years, I was working in Nor Chejanovsky's lab mainly on honey bee viruses and other insects as well.
My Master's degree where taken at Sharoni Shafir lab in the Faculty of Agriculture, Food & Environment The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the topic was "The role of flower morph in Eruca sativa (Brassicaceae) populations in attracting honey bees (Apis mellifera)".
Other than that, I am a mother to sweet two years old Tommy 🙂
