Before starting my role at the University of Hull, Charlotte carried out a PhD at the University of Glasgow on how we can consider climate change in the development of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). I have also studied sustainable fisheries management in Bangladesh, coral reef health in Egypt and shark fin commodity chains in Madagascar.
Her current research includes fisheries management, marine “rewilding” and marine conservation more generally. She is particularly interested in understanding human perceptions of the marine environment and how these can be incorporated into conservation, planning, marine management and sustainable use.
Charlotte's research expertise is in marine conservation and management, particularly considering human interactions with the marine environment. Recent research projects have included: “Sundarbans fisheries: A model system for the application of landscape ecology and social science approaches to management” and understanding the drivers of MPA compliance within local Bedouin communities, Egypt.
