Julia is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she drives our analysis of new markets, the identification of strategic partners, the communication of product strategy and the execution of product marketing and pre-sales support. Julia has been working with academic institutions around the globe since 2001 in a variety of roles centred around account management, product specialization, and training.
These roles enabled Julia to gain a deep insight into the academic community, particularly the function and future of university libraries, during one of the most significant periods of their histories: the universal shift from traditional print materials to electronic resources. More recently, her focus has been on research evaluation and how technology, data, and bibliometrics can add value to research assessment exercises and institutional review.
Julia grew up in the West Country of England and her years of living in the USA have not weakened her liking for tea and Cornish pasties, or her need to carry an umbrella wherever she travels.
