As a recently-launched title, Julia will be developing the remit of the Evolutionary Journal, alongside working on innovative ways to highlight new opportunities to publish to the global evolutionary biologist community. She has extensive experience of the publishing world as a NERC peer-review college member and an associate editor of the journal Evolution and teaches several foundational courses in biological sciences degree programmes at UCL. Equally, Julia brings experience as an author, having published over 50 papers in a wide variety of scientific journals.

Having been on the Linnean Society Council, Julia stepped down as a member of Council on 19 January 2022 in order to take up this role. We have hugely appreciated Julia’s work on the Council, and are looking forward to working with her in this new capacity.

The Evolutionary Journal of the Linnean Society publishes open-access original papers on all aspects of the evolutionary biology of diverse organisms and ecological systems.
