Julie McLeod

Research Associate (Health Psychology)

Julie has a background in health psychology, with a particular focus on behaviour and behaviour change. She is enthusiastic about psychological theories and enjoys both qualitative and quantitative data analysis. Julie is interested in interpersonal relationships and sexual health, particularly within the LGBTQ+ community and is passionate about developing, implementing, and evaluating interventions to improve health outcomes and wellbeing and reduce inequality.

As maternity leave cover for Dr. Jen MacDonald, Julie is leading, day-to-day, on Study A - Access, one of the SEQUENCE Digital pre-trial studies. This work involves interviews with people who have had no or a difficult experience using online sexual healthcare services in the past. This will help us to improve the design of the Online Chlamydia Care Pathway within the eSexual Health Clinic and make it accessible for as wide a range of people as possible.
