Charlotte obtained a Master’s degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the VU University in Amsterdam before moving to Brisbane in 2014 to work as a Research Assistant and Project Manager at the University of Queensland. In the School of Social Science she has been involved in qualitative research projects investigating a range of issues, including homelessness, housing, neighbourliness and the 2011 Brisbane floods. At ISSR she is currently working on the evaluation of the clinical nurse intervention program for Brisbane Common Ground.
During her Master’s studies, Charlotte’s primary area of research was violence and human security. Her thesis sought to create a better understanding of the coping mechanisms that develop in relation to an acute increase in violence and insecurity, within the context of the Mexican war on drugs.
