Charlotte studied veterinary medicine at The Royal Veterinary College, London. She spent several years working in equine practice in the Cotswolds before returning to the RVC to complete a PhD researching the pathophysiology of Type 1 Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy.
After completion of her PhD, she was awarded a Morris Animal Foundation Early Researcher Fellowship to evaluate mitochondrial function in horses with exertional rhabdomyolysis.
She has a particular interest in equine muscle disorders and metabolism
