Dr Melanie Parejo
Melanie Parejo is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the University of the Basque Country, Bilbao, Spain, in collaboration with the Swiss Bee Research Center. She completed her PhD on honey bee conservation genomics at the Institute of Bee Health, University of Bern, and the Swiss Bee Research Center, Agroscope, Switzerland. Before that, she studied Environmental Sciences at the ETH Zurich. Now she continues to work in the field of honey bee genetics with her current research project focusing on the study of past genetic diversity. Through her active membership in COLOSS (Association for the prevention of honey bee COlony LOSSes) and RNSBB (Research Network for Sustainable Bee Breeding), as well as her participation in international research projects, she is always up-to-date on the latest developments in honey bee breeding and genetics. Melanie is also involved in honey bee genetic testing for conservation management and breeding in Switzerland.
