Dr Julia Hoy

Julia Hoy is the Research Manager at the University of Queensland’s newly opened Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre, where she coordinates and supervises postgraduate students studying a wide range of wildlife conservation projects.

Her PhD research involved visiting and surveying over 60 zoos worldwide, and led to the development of a prototype microchip-automated feeder as enrichment for owl monkeys.

Julia has held multiple academic and research positions with the University of Queensland, lecturing in animal welfare, behaviour, zoo husbandry and management.

Julia specialises in researching and developing new technologies to improve captive wildlife management, and the overall success of wildlife reintroduction programs.
