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 students.

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 Chair of Governors for The Cavendish School, specialist provision for autistic children and young people.
