Julie has been involved in research contracts for UK government agencies on a range of rural issues, including the social impacts of England's inshore fishing industry, the impacts of woodland management on public benefits in forests and the socio-economic impacts of heritage in National Parks. She has worked on a 3 year multidisciplinary European research project CHARM III, exploring the social and cultural impacts of marine fishing on coastal communities in England and France, and is currently co-investigator on a EURO4.6 million ERDF co-financed Interreg IVA project GIFS, the Geography of Inshore Fishing and Sustainability.
