Visiting Researcher (2022-23) at Centre for Science and Policy, University of Cambridge


Visiting Researcher, Centre for Science and Policy

Julia joined CSaP as a Visiting Researcher in 2022. She is passionate about solving questions that show systemic and structural flaws. Which is why she is particularly interested in how academic evidence influences the policy making process for education in the UK, especially adolescents mental health.

Julia is a graduate student of “Responsibility in Science, Engineering and Technology” at the Technical University of Munich. She is studying the interrelation of technology, politics, science and society and she is keen on learning about evidence-based politics and social justice in social media.

Julia joined CSaP as a Policy intern for a 3-month internship in 2020.
She finished a B.A. in Intercultural and Business Studies where she focused on Economics, Politics and Southeast Asian Studies. Her studies culminated in a thesis about the effect of the Lèse-Majesté Law and the Computer Crimes Act of the Thai penal code on the democratisation process of the country.

Besides her studies Julia is interested in improving European Politics and dedicates her free time to the party, Volt Europa. Aiming to break down social barriers and change politics herself, she ran for the German parliament, the Bundestag, in 2021.
