Sandra Irwin

Biography

Sandra graduated with a PhD in aquaculture from UCC in 1998. Since then she has worked as a post-doctoral researcher and project manager on a variety of national and EU funded projects in both Scotland and Ireland. Sandra has more than 30 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and has co-authored a number of book chapters. She completed a Project Management course with iPM (Integrate Project Management) in 2008. Since 2007 Sandra has been the programme manager on the multi-disciplinary PLANFORBIO forest biodiversity research programme at UCC, WIT and TCD, and also manages a number of other biodiversity related research projects at UCC.
