Julie has an Engineering Diploma from the Institut des Sciences de l’Ingenieur de Toulon et du Var (ISITV) with a speciality in marine sciences. She has always had a passion and deep interest for oceanographic matters and hence chose to orient her career towards this field. She is now a third year PhD student at the Centre d’Oceanologie de Marseille (COM), in the Laboratoire d’Oceanographie et de Biogeochimie (LOB) under the supervision of Pr. J.-L. Devenon and Dr. A. Petrenko. Her PhD research focuses on studying the intrusions of the Mediterranean Northern Current (NC) on the Gulf of Lion’s continental shelf. She has demonstrated the presence of the NC’s intrusions on the eastern part of the Gulf with current and hydrological cruise data, and has used numerical modelling to investigate the forcing of these shelf-edge processes.
