Biography

Julia joined T&E in June 2015, having previously worked for the Mayor of London and in the European Parliament. During her four years in the parliament, she was researcher and assistant to Fiona Hall MEP, and followed EU legislation on renewables, energy efficiency and sustainable transport in the Industry, Research and Energy Committee. Julia works as the manager on T&E’s clean vehicles team and is currently leading work on diesel emissions and vehicle testing reform, as well as working on the upcoming CO2 legislation for cars and vans.

Hailing from Latvia, Julia studied European politics and French at Goldsmiths, University of London, and is currently undertaking the MSc in energy engineering programme at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. She speaks English, French, Latvian and Russian, and loves swimming and travelling in her spare time – as well as good red wine (with emphasis on oenology, not drinking, of course).
