Julia has recently undertaken a DPhil in Egyptology at the University of Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar (2015–19). Before this, she completed a BA (Hons) and MA in Ancient History at the University of Auckland. Her research examines veneration and commemorative practices in ancient Egypt, particularly in the late Old Kingdom.
She is a tutor and occasional lecturer for undergraduate courses in ancient Egyptian art and history at the University of Oxford and co-supervises undergraduate dissertations on material culture topics. She has served as president of Current Research in Egyptology (2016–17), and is a former co-chair of AWAWS Auckland Chapter (2014–15).
Julia also has extensive professional experience in museums (Auckland Museum), archives (Egypt Exploration Society; Courtauld) and libraries (Bodleian Libraries; The Queen’s College), with a developing specialisation in photography and digitisation.
Julia can offer online, distance peer-mentoring to graduate students in Egyptology, or students of any discipline considering alternative pathways in the GLAM sector in the UK or in Australasia.
Julia is willing to mentor across all disciplines in a way that suits the mentee. She has the capacity to mentor a maximum of 1 mentee at any stage.
