Research Interests

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 focuses on macrosocial determinants of noncommunicable diseases. Her interests include the impact of economic governance on public health, the role of commercial actors in shaping public health policymaking, as well as the relationship between research and policy in those areas. She has explored these issues with an empirical focus on the EU context, reflecting upon 'health promotion mainstreaming' as a site of tension between the social and economic logics of EU integration. More recently, she has grown interested in 'degrowth' and health determinants.
