Gwyneth MacMaster – Senior Technical Officer
email: gwyneth.macmaster [at] ucd [dot] ie
I graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a B.A. in Botany and completed an MSc in the Biodiversity and Taxonomy of Plants at the University of Edinburgh. In recent years I have obtained a certificate in Health and Safety from UCD and a diploma in Project Management from Dublin Business School.
As a Senior Technical Officer I manage the day-to-day running of the lab including responsibility for health and safety. I provide technical support to the team and visiting students. Previous research work has included a re-analysis of the Lamb-Clarke historical apple collection using molecular markers.
My scientific interests are diverse, ranging from involvement in research areas in plant molecular genetics and molecular ecology to classical botany and palaeoecology.
