Juliana is a PhD student at Swinburne University of Technology, researching motivations for the adoption of low carbon practices in construction supply chains. For this research, Juliana works with public entities such as local government authorities and construction supply chains involved in the delivery of precinct development projects.
Juliana holds a double Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Science from Monash University. Originally wanting to become a forensic scientist, Juliana majored in Criminology and Genetics. It wasn’t until she completed her biodiversity and conservation components that she realised her true passion for the environment. Her studies in psychological and social sciences have equipped her with the knowledge necessary to undertake her Thesis topic in motivation. Additionally, prior to the commencement of her PhD, Juliana was a research assistant for the Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre based in Swinburne. In this role, she gained knowledge in construction supply chains and worked on several research projects, co-producing academic peer-reviewed publications.
Juliana has been working casually with Ndevr Environmental since September 2015, assisting the Team with research as well as compliance of NCOS audits and NGER and ERF reporting guidelines.
