Name: Owen Wagner
Function: Apiary Manager 
Research: I manage the CIBER research apiaries by combining a broad set of skills to produce a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary beekeeping. Besides ensuring the health of our beehives I also work closely with our graduate students to ensure that our apiaries meet the various needs and demands of their research projects. This includes, but is not limited to, running seasonal breeding programs utilizing artificial insemination, installing man made sensors in our hives to collect valuable data, and trial running new medications and techniques in order to reduce the load of various bee illnesses and parasites.
