Doctor in the house

A huge congratulations to mother of three, Caroline Wohlfeil, of Two Wells, above, who graduated from Flinders University with a PhD in Philosophy last month.
Caroline’s journey to doctorate has taken a little longer than most, having begun her studies in 2008.
Along the way she got married (to Devon Hardiman) and had three beautiful boys, (Hugo, Oliver and Leo), all while still studying.
Caroline’s PhD project investigated the transmission pathways in reptile ticks; it utilised the social networks of the host, Sleepy lizard, Tiliqua rugosa and the genetics of the reptile tick, Bothriocroton hydrosauri.
Her thesis was entitled: Transmission pathways of reptile tick.
Caroline says the journey has been a long one and many people helped, supported and inspired her along the way.
“From my family to lab colleges and friends, for that I am grateful”.
