Having been engaged in public history projects since 2013, Julia is interested in developing new models of impact and enterprise that embrace the unique strengths of the humanities. Experiencing impact training sessions from the perspective of a researcher, Julia became increasingly frustrated at the emphasis placed on STEM-based models at the expense of non-STEM research. Her experience of the HE sector both in the UK and abroad, encompassing Oxbridge, Russell Group, and GuildHE, has given her a unique understanding of the challenges faced by HE providers of very different sizes and with different strategic visions. In her spare time, Julia performs stand-up comedy based on her historical research, and has performed at Lambeth Palace Library and the British Academy Summer Showcase.
