Dr Julie Clark is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy. Her primary research focus is urban and regional policy, with a special interest in the impacts of the urban environment on social inclusion, health and wellbeing. Sustainability forms a recurrent theme in her research and Julie is currently the Principal Investigator on an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council funded project for the DecarboN8 network, exploring modal shift in transport and the social acceptability of policy. She recently served for three years as Associate Director (Methods Hub) with the Economic and Social Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership at the Scottish Graduate School for Social Science.
