Julie has worked cross-culturally in the South Pacific and with remote Northern Territory Aboriginal communities for over 20 years. 

Since being awarded a National Health and Medical Research Council Public Health Fellowship in 2009, Julie has developed a significant research program in the area of Indigenous nutrition and is contributing to the evidence base to inform policy and practice.

Her research focuses on population dietary interventions, determinants of healthy eating and building capacity to support community-driven decision-making for nutrition improvement. She is currently leading the SHOP@RIC trial which is assessing the effect of a price discount on fruit and vegetables, diet drinks and water on store food purchases in 20 remote communities.
