Julie is the Director of Research Impact Development at the University of Lincolnshire, with a specific focus on impact strategy, impact culture and the Research Excellence Framework; in addition to continuing her work as a consultant within the sector - most notably as Emerald Publishing's Impact Literacy Advisor. Prior to taking on her current role, Julie was seconded to the role of Coventry University's Impact Officer where she supported impact bid writing, planning and delivery across the institution.
A HCPC Registered Health Psychologist and an applied researcher for 15 years, Julie's specialism is behaviour change, primarily intervention development, adolescent sexual health and the translation of research into practice. Julie has been a grant holder, research team lead, Prince2 project manager and principal investigator across multiple studies; with extensive experience in qualitative and quantitative methods with varied participant groups. Julie's research is underpinned by behaviour change theory and practice - her work formed part of Coventry University’s REF 2014 UoA3 submission: New Approaches in Addressing Sexual Health and Sex Education which the panel cited as 'outstanding'.
Julie is currently collaborating with David Phipps of York University (Canada), named Canada's most influential knowledge broker, to develop the concept of Impact Literacy and build international standards for knowledge broker competencies.
