She is a Teaching and Research Fellow based at the OPENspace Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh. Her work focuses on the links between urban green & blue spaces and mental health & wellbeing, and how exposures affect us in different ways according to contextual factors.

Charlotte currently works within the large multidisciplinary GroundsWell consortium, which is a programme of work in three cities – Belfast, Edinburgh and Liverpool. Specifically, her research focuses on the development and evaluation of community-based urban green & blue space interventions, using community engagement, co-design, systems science, and citizen science approaches.
