Profile

Julie is an environmental social scientist with research that focuses on human-environment relationships, particularly around natural resource management, spanning forestry, fisheries and agriculture. She often works as part of interdisciplinary teams, bringing social science expertise to policy-related research, alongside natural scientists and economists, and more recently with arts’ scholars. She has undertaken research for a range of funders, such as UKRI, the European Commission and the UK Government. Julie is also Ambassador of the NERC, ESRC & AHRC funded Future of UK Treescapes Programme (2020-2024), a £14.5M programme of research running for four years from 2020. For further information click here.

Julie joined the CCRI in September 2017, after previously working at the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London on the UNPICK (Understanding public risk in relation to tree health) project, funded as part of the Tree Health & Biosecurity Initiative (THAPBI) under the auspices of the Living With Environmental Change Partnership (BBSRC, Defra, ESRC, Forestry Commission, NERC, Scottish Government). Prior to that Julie was based at the University of Greenwich, co-leading work on several European Interreg IVa 2 Seas projects (GIFS – Geography of Inshore Fishing and Sustainability; TourFish – Tourism for Inshore Fishing, Food and Sustainability) and the Interreg IVa France-England project CHARM III (Channel integrated approach for marine resource management).
