Born in Cork, Julie started a Joint Honours Degree in Mathematics and Physics in University College Cork in 1998, graduating in 2002. During her final year of her degree her teaching career began as she tutored first year engineers. In 2003, she started a research masters in Mathematics with Professor Finbarr Holland in University College Cork in area of Mathematical Analysis during which time she continued tutoring Mathematics. After graduating with an M.Sc. in 2004, Julie then spent some time in Eastern Europe settling in Warsaw, Poland. In Spring 2005, Julie returned to Cork as most Corkonians do. She started lecturing Mathematics at Cork Institute of Technology. During her time in C.I.T. Julie lectured maths modules to students from many disciplines inluding Physics, Computing, Engineering (Biomedical, Civil and Mechanical), Business and Culinary Arts as well as lecturing in the National Maritime College of Ireland. In October 2006 Julie returned to education. She started her Ph.D in Mathematics with Dr. Tom Carroll of University College Cork on the topic of Brownian motion. Throughout her Ph.D. she continued tutoring and lecturing Mathematics. Between 2010 and 2012 she ran Cork Maths Centre. Following this she again returned to CIT for good this time as a lecturer of Mathematics. Currently, Julie does a lot of work in the Academic Learning Centre in CIT where she runs Maths drop in sessions which are attended by students across all disciplines and levels.
