Julian's technique in offender profiling was used in the television series Wire in the Blood and he also took part in the TV factual series, The Real Cracker. Julian will be using his Personality Profiling technique for the very first time on King Richard III in order to help the team discover whether King Richard was the psychopath of Shakespeare and the Tudor tradition. particular, she is interested in how analysis of skeletal remains may be combined with that of burial taphonomy and burial practice to investigate social identity.
