Welcome to the research pages of Dr. Samantha Alger. I am an ecologist specializing in pollinators with one foot in research and another in consulting. I work at VHB as an Environmental Scientist/Pollinator Specialist. I am also a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont where I teach beekeeping, conduct original research related to bee disease, and direct the Vermont Bee Lab.

The Vermont Bee Lab began in 2019 (website to come!) will offer disease diagnostic services for Vermont Beekeepers. Follow us on facebook, twitter, and Instagram to stay up-to-date on our progress.
