Appointment
  • Research Associate
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society
  • UCL Institute of Education
Biography

Julie joined the Institute of Education March 2017 as a Research Associate on the second phase of the ASPIRES project. As a science teacher by background and having completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh investigating the impact of inquiry-based learning programmes on motivation and self-regulated processes among young science students, she was drawn to the project with its strong ties to adolescent development and science education reform. Over the course of the project, Julie will be collaborating with the wider project team to build on the literature resulting from the first phase of the ASPIRES project in order to further understand how educational and occupational aspirations are formed among young students, and how they change over time.

Research Summary

Julie's current research focuses on understanding young students aspirations in science and the related factors that influences these aspirations. She has a particular interest in investigating how aspirations, attitudes, and self-beliefs change over time and exploring potential mediating factors. Past research has involved exploring the impact of inquiry learning environments on students' development of self-regulated processes and related motivations. She has particular expertise in quantitative methods and enjoys adopting a mixed-methods approach to her work.  

Teaching Summary

Julie taught secondary school Science (Biology and Chemistry) in Canada before completing her postgraduate studies in the UK. After obtaining her PhD, Julie has taught on several Masters level courses, with a specific focus on Research Methods. She enjoys sharing her research findings with students and adjusting her teaching to appropriate levels based on students' experiences. She has a particular passion for teaching quantitative methods and helping a wide range of students understand that employing quantitative analyses do not have to be scary! She obtained funding to run a series of support sessions to help alleviate stress levels among Masters and PhD students using quantitative methods in their research.
