Julia holds a BA (Hons) in Geography (2.i) from Staffordshire University, and a PhD from Plymouth University.
Julias main interests surround the environmental and social aspects of creating sustainable communities. Much of her work has been focused on transport and the environment and in the past 20 years she has worked on many transport projects and has expertise in both rural and urban transport issues, including a two year project funded by the ESRC. Julia has investigated ethical arguments for formulating transport policy and has researched some of the psychological issues that need to be tackled in order to achieve more sustainable travel behaviours. Julia has a specialized knowledge of Car Clubs and has conducted various feasibility studies and other research into their potential.
Julia also has a keen interest in planning issues and has been involved in a series of research projects exploring matters of concern. These range from a Leverhulme funded project on planning and conflict issues on the edge of towns in the UK and in Japan, to issues of poor planning compliance in the Middle East.
Environmental management is a further key area for Julia and she has experience of research in the corporate and community sectors. She is particularly interested in drivers and barriers to sustainable environmental management, and the role of the individual in facilitating or barring change. She has been involved in researching these issues in Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and the UK. She has successfully supervised 6 students in the environment and planning areas.
Julia also has a track record of research in social enterprise and has successfully supervised 3 Phds in this area.
Her interests have led to the development of the MSc in Risk, Disaster and Environmental Management, which she manages as course leader.
Julia is on the Editorial Board for Sustainable Development.
Julia is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
