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.
At Rice University, I became a Graduate Research Fellowship by the National Science Foundation (NSF). My work has been published by Organizational Dynamics, Small Group Research, People + Strategy, The Journal for Graduate Medical Education, and The Journal of Clinical Psychology. My research has secured grant funding from the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and Rice University’s Social Sciences Research Institute; it has also garnered recognition by the American Public Health Association (APHA). I am currently an intern at Baylor College of Medicine.
Going forward, I hope to find 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.
