Senior Lecturer, The University of Melbourne
Dr Rebecca Doyle is a senior lecturer with the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, and researcher at the Animal Welfare Science Centre, the University of Melbourne. After studying animal science at Sydney University, Rebecca completed a PhD with the CSIRO where she studied cognitive measures of animal welfare. Rebecca still studies fundamental measures of welfare, but now also conducts applied research, including improving animal welfare and production in developing countries. Rebecca loves working in the area of sheep cognition, but has a soft spot for Galapagos tortoises, sloths and other slow-moving creatures that occupy slightly obscure ecological niches.
