VAB Profile: Julia Fordham

Julia Fordham (VIPER' 16)



  • Materials Science and Engineering & Environmental Science

Current Job/Company

  • Energy Consultant at AFRY Management Consulting

Why did you join VAB?

  • As part of the inaugural class of VIPER, I wish we would have had an alumni network to engage with and gain a better insight to what's possible after graduation. I joined VAB to help be a part of forming that alumni network and to reconnect again with VIPER and Penn.

What do you hope to achieve in VAB?

  • I hope we can open the discussion between current students and alumni¬†and start to build a network that will last long after students graduate. I would also like to get more alumni in contact with one another for the same reasons of networking and sharing opportunities.

What are you most excited about?

  • As most things, I am excited about getting to do some events in person and get to know VIPER students/alumni better.
