About

In 2019 Charlotte received BSc (Hons) Physics from the University of Lincoln, performing two summer research projects "Statistical Analysis of Granular Media" under the supervision of Dr Fabien Paillusson and "Combinatoric Modelling of Hydrogen Bonding" under the supervision of Dr Martin Greenall, as well as writing a thesis on "A Geometric View of Electromagnetism" which was also under Dr Paillusson's supervision.

Following this, in 2021 Charlotte received MSc Mathematical and Theoretical Physics from the University of Sheffield, writing a literature review on "Two Dimensional Quantum Field Theories" under the supervision of Professor Elizabeth Winstanley and a thesis on "Paradoxes of the Quantum Aspects of Black Holes: Approaching Quantum Gravity through the Firewall Paradox" under the supervision of Dr Kento Osuga and Dr Andrea Brini.

In 2020 Charlotte joined the Quantum Biology Doctoral Training Centre (overlap with MSc due to covid) with research interests spanning theoretical physics, computational chemistry, and mathematical biology. More details of her primary research project -- "Spin Dynamics of Radical Pairs in Cellular Environments" under the supervision of Dr Brendan Howlin (computational chemistry), Dr Daniel Kattnig (theoretical physics and mathematical modelling; University of Exeter), and Professor Johnjoe McFadden (biology advisor) -- are covered on the Research page.
