Katja Hogendoorn is a senior researcher at the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine. Her research focuses on the maintenance and enhancement of bees as pollinators of crops and native plants. At a more general level, she is interested in ecology and evolution of bee behaviour and diversity. Katja aims to use her understanding of bee behaviour to inform management decisions for the improvement of bee health, biodiversity, and crop pollination services.
Katja is currently involved several collaborations between Australian researchers, primary industries, and governmental organisations to improve pollination in protected cropping. She is also active in bee conservation and chairs the IUCN-Oceania WIld Bee Specialist Group.
