Julie joined the Melbourne Institute as a Research Fellow in October 2010 and was promoted to Senior Research Fellow in 2015.
She graduated from the French National School of Statistics and Economic Administration (Ensae) in 2005. Julie holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Paris 1 (June 2009). In her PhD studies, she studied the relationship between fertility, labour force participation of mothers and family policies. While completing her PhD, Julie worked for 3 years at the French Ministry of Labour as a Junior Economic Research Analyst. During this time, she worked on various issues linked to program evaluation of labour market policies.
Since joining the Institute, Julie participated in designing the Journeys Home Survey, a longitudinal study of Australians who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. Her current research revolves around a number of issues related to disadvantage in education, housing, health and labour economics. Specifically, she works on homelessness & precarious housing, substance use, incarceration, gender gaps in education, peer effects and female's labour market participation.
