Julie worked at SEI York from 2007 until 2012. Her PhD research was concerned with the interface between science and policy. She focused on air pollution and biodiversity, in Europe and the UK.
Her research interests lie in understanding the co-production of science and policy process and she is approaching this using Social Network Analysis. She completed an MA in Sociology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium) and then an MA in Criminology at the Université de Liège (Belgium), where she then worked as a researcher. Julie went on to take a coordination role for the Belgian Ministry of Health for three years, aiming at a better continuity of care for addicted patients.
Besides her PhD, she now also works for UKPopNet in order to assess its legacy in providing policy relevant science and actively engaging with stakeholders. For the last few years, she has been developing e-learning support for the Environment Department.
