Julii Brainard


Julii started out as a expert in geographic information systems. With this springboard she moved into mapping risks posed by movements of hazardous waste, carbon sequestration, groundwater recharge, benefits of woodland recreation, environmental pollution and inequities in cancer outcomes. Along the way she became a specialist in systematic reviews (Cochrane reviewer), modelling human behaviour and information spread (including misinformation or fake news), health communication (health literacy) and epidemiology (assessing risk factors and calculating risk ratios). She can read very fast and has learnt to apply lots of great statistical methods to interesting data.
