Julie is a member of the Woods Institute’s Global Freshwater Initiative team. Her interests center on water resource issues, with a focus on urban water management. Sustainable water management is critical for human well-being and environmental systems. Julie’s research is aimed at identifying and quantifying water vulnerability in urban systems throughout the world. Her current projects include the development of a comprehensive scalable framework for assessing water vulnerability and critical evaluation of the impacts of urban water supply development on watershed health.
