Professor Julie Taylor is a nurse scientist specialising in child maltreatment, and has extensive research experience with vulnerable populations using a wide range of qualitative and participative methods. Her research programme is concentrated at the interface between health and social care and is largely underpinned by the discourse of cumulative harm and the exponential effects of living with multiple adversities (domestic abuse, parental mental ill health, substance misuse, disabilities, etc). Her key focus of current international work is on witchcraft related violence against children with albinism in sub-Saharan Africa. Julie was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Nursing for services to child protection in 2013.
