She currently holds an NHMRC Career Development Fellowship (CDF). She was the top-ranked NHMRC CDF-1 applicant in 2012 and CDF-2 applicant in 2016 in her category. She has a particular interest in improving efficacy, accessibility and user-friendliness of injury prevention products and equipment.

Before completing her PhD in 2008, Julie had a long history working in Road Safety Research and Policy for the NSW government and this experience has greatly shaped her overall research approach and objective of identifying tangible and implementable solutions to reduce injury and its impact on society.
