Julie completed a Master’s degree in History with a focus on Modern Korean History and North East Asian Politics, with a research focus on the 1946-47 US-USSR Joint Commission on Korea. Following her Master’s she was an Intern with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in Geneva, Switzerland where she worked with the Conference on Disarmament.
