Julien is a vertebrate palaeontologist and palaeoecologist. He received a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Mathematics from the University of Newcastle, Australia and a Bachelor of Sciences (Hons) and PhD from the University of New South Wales, Sydney. He completed a three year postdoctoral research assistant position at Liverpool John Moores University, UK, examining the use of taxon-free variables in palaeoecological analyses. Following the completion of this project, he worked for 12 months at the Queensland Museum as curator of Geosciences. He successfully secured a University of Queensland Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2012 with projects examining Australian marsupial palaeontology, particularly Pliocene faunas, as well as community ecology of Pleistocene/Holocene small mammal assemblages. He has also been involved in hominin and large mammal palaeoecological research of the Plio-Pleistocene of East Africa and Southeast Asia. Julien is currently working on adding to Sumatra's Pleistocene fossil record, and understanding its evolutionary and environmental history
