The School of Psychology welcomes Dr Julie McMullan
Dr Julie McMullan - Post Doctoral Research Assistant (SPINE-COS-AYA Project)
Julie has recently joined the School of Psychology after working as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Centre for Public Health for almost four years. Julie graduated from Aberdeen University in 2008 with a degree in Health Sciences. She proceeded to work in the Northern Ireland Civil Service (NICS) in a ‘Health Promotion’ role where she developed a keen interest in gaining a formal qualification in this field. Part funded by the NICS, Julie graduated with an MSc in Health Promotion and Population Health from Ulster University in 2010. During her time studying for the MSc Julie acquired a keen interest in research and began a PhD at Ulster University in 2012 focusing on self-harm and the online environment. Julie has a genuine interest in qualitative research and helping people across communities and is very much looking forward to being part the ‘SPINE-COS-AYA’ project. Through this project the team hope to develop a person centred core outcome set for adolescents and young adults with spinal deformity undergoing treatment.
