Charlotte received a BSc (Honors) in forensic anthropology in 2008 and completed an MSc in Human Identification in 2010, both from the University of Dundee. Following her master’s degree she worked for five years at the Institute of forensic medicine in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a biological anthropologist where she completed her PhD in 2016. Her PhD had a focus on health, diseases and development during the Danish medieval period. Charlotte then trained as a diagnostic radiographer and worked for the NHS in Scotland for the next two years before joining Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada in 2020.
Charlotte joined the Department of Archaeology in January 2021 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in osteology on the ERC-funded COMMIOS project led by Professor Ian Armit. The multidisciplinary project, combining funerary archaeology, osteology, aDNA and stable isotopes, explores population migrations and interactions across Britain and continental Europe during the Iron Age.
Charlotte’s research interests focus on paleoepidemiology, paleopathology and growth and development of non-adults. She is particularly keen on incorporating medical imaging within biological anthropology with her joint background in biological anthropology and diagnostic radiography.
As the research lead for osteology on the ERC-funded COMMIOS Project, Charlotte will contribute with demographic profiles from the skeletal remains themselves, incorporating patterns of health, disease and growth. This will gain knowledge of the human populations from Iron Age Britain and the Near Continent, and how this intersects with funerary practices, isotopic and aDNA evidence.
