Alexai Faulkner

Technician

 

Lex works primarily in the molecular lab helping the team research honeybee viruses. She graduated from the UMN in December 2019 with a Bachelors degree in Plant & Microbial Biology. During her undergraduate time, she worked on plant-pollinator interactions and fell in love with the native bees she was studying. Upon graduation, she joined the Spivak lab team and hopes to go on to pursue a Ph.D. within the next few years, but not before learning as much as she can while working in the Bee Lab.
