Janine Erica Abecia is a PhD candidate in the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) under the primary supervision of Associate Professor Alison J. King. Janine has worked at the Department of Biology, University of the Philippines-Manila as a full-time University Tutor/Instructor for six years before coming to Australia. Her research interest is broad which includes reproductive biology, marine biology and aquatic ecology. She has previously researched on the reproductive biology of the coral Porites cylindrica, biodegradation potential of the fungus Xylaria sp. on polystyrene waste, and trait adaptations in relation to habitat and predominant flow type of Glossamia aprion. Janine holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Master of Science in Marine Science from the University of the Philippines and Master of Environmental Management from Charles Darwin University.
