Julie B. Staunton is a British theoretical physicist. She is a professor at the University of Warwick. Prior to taking up an academic position at Warwick, Staunton was a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London. She completed her PhD at the University of Bristol under the supervision of Balázs Győrffy.

Staunton is known for her work on magnetism, alloys, and relativistic effects. In particular, she has pioneered applications of the Disordered Local Moment (DLM) picture[1][2][3] to a variety of problems in magnetism. The DLM state, which is based on density functional theory, aims to model magnetic materials at finite temperatures, including above their Curie temperatures. Staunton has leveraged aspects of this approach to describe the temperature dependence of magnetic properties such as magnetic anisotropy[4], successfully describing systems based on both transition metals[5] and rare-earth elements[6].
