This project creates synergy between citizen observations, scientists, and media. Julia produces “multimedia dialogue between citizens and scientists and hopes to help listeners both understand their own experiences with the weather, and take pride in their local landscape and culture.”
Julia holds a degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. She has worked as a reporter and producer for PRI’s The World and The Nature Conservancy, and was a Metcalf Fellow at BBC. She started her career as a photographer for the Associated Press covering the Tsunami in Sri Lanka and Hurricane Katrina.
