Julie is an experienced teacher, academic mentor and researcher based in Cambridge. Her doctoral research at Cambridge University’s Faculty of Education explores barriers to inclusion for autistic pupils in mainstream secondary school.

Inclusive educational practice relies on a sound understanding of the differences in the ways individual pupils experience and think about their learning. Julie’s work combines research into differences in the learning experience with a focus on inclusive educational practice.  

Julie is also a specialist learning mentor for the University of Cambridge and supervises undergraduates studying education. She is working with The Eastern Learning Alliance on the design The Cavendish School, opening in September 2021 to provide specialist provision for children with autism.
