    Research Interests

    Julie-Ann Jordan’s main research interest is youth development; throughout her career she has used innovative statistical methods to measure and gain a better understanding of educational, well-being and behavioural trajectories.  In 2008, she completed her PhD which focused on factors affecting children’s mathematical development.  Since then she has worked as a Teaching Fellow in Statistics at Queen’s University Belfast (2007-2009) and an assistant statistician for Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA, 2009-2012).

    Julie-Ann has been a researcher at Queen’s University Belfast since 2012.  During this time she has worked on youth development research projects focused on poverty and autism (OFMDFM funded) offending behaviour trajectories (OFMDFM funded), and evaluating the effectiveness of Nurture Group provision (DENI funded) . More recently she has worked on projects examining patterns of Novel Psychocactive Substance use  (NIHR funded), the role of social networks in substance use and offending behaviour development (MRC funded), and harmonisation of NI and RoI alcohol related data (HSC R & D Office funded). These projects had substantive quantitative components -  a variety of adavanced statistical techniques such as growth curve modelling, latent class analysis, and social network analysis were used.

    Presently I co-ordinate (with Dr Kathryn Higgins) a trauma research group consisting of key trauma practictioners. This group are involved in devising trauma-related research questions/transgenerational research design elements for the next wave of the Belfast Youth Development Study.
