Julia is a Professor and Research Lead for Paramedic Science and an Associate Dean of School (Research) in the School of Health and Social Work at the University of Hertfordshire.
She has extensive experience of undertaking research in a variety of healthcare settings as well as being involved in the development and delivery of Higher Education courses both for already qualified paramedics and, also, for students on pre-registration paramedic science programmes. She holds a PhD from King's College, London which was based on her research with people who were street homeless, looking at their experiences of health and healthcare while living on the streets.
