Research

Charlotte is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics Relativity and Gravitation research group. Her research interests are Poisson and symplectic geometry, especially as inspired by theoretical physics, in particular string theory. She currently works on branes in generalised complex geometry.
