Charlotte obtained her MChem in Chemistry from Cardiff University, where she undertook research with Dr Michael Coogan. She then went on to obtain a PhD at Imperial College London within the laboratory of Professor Nicholas Long in 2015, working on multimodal imaging agents for the in vivo detection of zinc. Charlotte continued in Nick’s lab for one year as a Postdoctoral Researcher before being awarded a JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Fellowship in 2016 to carry out research in the laboratory of Professor Yasuteru Urano at The University of Tokyo. Here she worked on designing activatable fluorescence probes for the detection of enzymes overexpressed in cancer tissues.

In 2018 she returned to the UK to King’s College London as a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the laboratory of Dr Michelle Ma, looking into designing new bifunctional chelators for therapeutic radiometals. In 2020 she was promoted to Postdoctoral Research Fellow joining the MITHRAS team.

Research interests: Multimodal Imaging - In vivo metal detection - Fluorescence activation via metal chelation/enzyme cleavage - Radiometal/lanthanide bifunctional chelator design, synthesis and evaluation
