Biography

Julia has worked at the University since 2004 and teaches across all undergraduate cohorts, currently teaching Psychological Research Methods, Biopsychology and Evolutionary Psychology. Her research interests lie principally in evolutionary psychology. Specific areas of interest within this domain include the use of faciometrics in research related to masculinity/ femininity across the lifespan and across groups, phenotypic diversity in intra and inter sex sexual strategies and orientation, and appearance manipulation. Research has employed both physiological (BP, 2D:4D, faciometric measures) and psychological measures as methods of investigation. Other research interests include ‘the psychology of the psychologist’, and its relevance to pedagogical concerns as well as the pedagogical issues regarding the teaching of Research Methods in H.E.
