Nicholas Doidge

PhD Student - The University of Melbourne, Zoos Victoria


Professional Bio

Nick grew up in the scruffy desert town of Tucson, Arizona, and spent much of his childhood collecting scorpions and handling giant tarantulas. After graduating from the University of Melbourne, Nick began his veterinary career at an exotics-only private practice in the west of Melbourne, before joining Zoos Victoria as a veterinary resident at Melbourne Zoo. Upon completion of his zoo residency he converted his Masters research into a full-time PhD, and is currently half-way through his project on bacterial disease in the critically endangered Lord Howe Island stick insect.
