Personal profile


Charlotte is a political sociologist interested in health promotion and the political determinants of non-communicable diseases.

Her interest in the politics of health developed while working as a dietitian in Nepal between 2012 and 2014, where she established and led a nutrition department in Dhulikhel at the Kathmandu University Teaching Hospital. After coming back to Europe, she worked as a policy intern for Food and Agriculture at the European Public Health Alliance.

Charlotte’s research looks at how institutional, ideational, and discursive power dynamics shape the meaning and scope of the EU's involvement in health promotion. Her work reflects upon 'health promotion mainstreaming' both as a site of tension between the social and economic logics of EU integration, and as a site of ontological tension within the public health discipline more broadly. More recently, she has grown interested in exploring the concept of 'degrowth' from a sociology of health angle.
