Charlotte is currently a first year PhD student at the King's Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR), King's College London and is funded by the Office for Veterans Affairs. Charlotte completed a Bachelor of Science (with honours) degree in Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2018 and a Master of Science degree in Mental Health, Ethics, and Law at King’s College London in 2019.

She went on to work as a Research Assistant in the field of military mental health in April 2020, first at Combat Stress and then joining KCMHR in September 2021. Her work has covered several studies including a novel alcohol intervention app for veterans (Drinks:Ration), validating the Military Service Identification Tool for use on electronic health records, investigating the health and wellbeing of female veterans, exploring the impact of Covid-19 on veterans, and investigating UK veteran families.

Charlotte’s current PhD work uses data from various stages of the KCMHR health and wellbeing survey, and sets out to explore the prevalence, risk and protective factors associated with self-harm, suicidal ideation and suicide attempts in the Armed Forces (serving personnel and veterans) using a mixed-methods design.
