She has over 15 years' experience of working with people with ASD who have complex mental health needs and/or offending behaviour.

Juli's research interests include developing our understanding of how to reduce offending behaviour in people with ASD. She was the Lead Researcher for a study to establish the prevalence of ASD amongst women in Broadmoor Hospital, and is currently engaged in a project to investigate the prevalence of ASD in the prison population.
