I’m Julie, a Ph.D. candidate in Industrial/Organizational Psychology at Rice University.
Born and raised in southern California, I studied and lived in the Bay Area following a summer in Paris, France. After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley magna cum laude with highest honors in psychology, I worked for three years in behavioral health research at the University of California, San Francisco and the San Francisco VA Medical Center. During this time, I gained experience across a number of disciplines, including public health and health, social, & clinical psychology.
As a Graduate Research Fellow of the National Science Foundation (NSF), I develop and lead interdisciplinary research around inequity and interventional science. I currently apply evidence-based expertise in my role as a research intern at Baylor College of Medicine. My work has been published by Human Factors, The Journal of Clinical Psychology, The Journal for Graduate Medical Education, Leadership Quarterly, Organizational Dynamics, People + Strategy, and Small Group Research. My research has secured grant funding from the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and recognition by the American Public Health Association (APHA).
Going forward, I seek an academic position with balanced emphases on research and teaching. I care deeply about mentoring, educating, and engaging in work that can tangibly improve working environments.
In my spare time, I can be found in the kitchen cooking, in a yoga studio practicing, on my couch reading, or (preferably) on a plane to some place new and exciting.
