Julie is a Senior Lecturer and Researcher for CREAM (The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media) at the University of Westminster. Julie is a specialist in interdisciplinary practice, exploring the intersections between film, installation, performance, interactivity and site-specificity. Her research is engaged with collaborative and knowledge-led approaches to field research, from moving image to emergent technologies and data collection. Through the exploration of real and representational space she investigates how technical machines can perform site, creating critical experiences for audiences that open debate and question social spaces. She studied at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London, completing her practice-based PhD in 2017.
