Rebecca Martin

Biography:
Rebecca graduated from University College Cork in 2006, with a BSc in Zoology. Modules within her degree included immunology, molecular biology, molecular genetics, invertebrate form and function, comparative and animal physiology, evolutionary biology, biodiversity, applied ecology, conservation biology, agroecology, aquatic biology, population ecology and ecotoxicology. Her final year dissertation involved investigating reproductive aspects of the common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis L.) in the Algarve, Portugal. She is currently studying for her PhD, which is entitled ‘Arthropod biodiversity in a range of Irish forest types’, as part of the research team on the PLANFORBIO project at UCC.
