Charlotte is a Volcanologist at the British Geological Survey. She specialises in volcanic geology, lava flow emplacement, large magnitude volcanic eruptions and geochemistry. Charlotte is looking at the volcanic deposits on Ascension Island and will bring together the outcomes from many parts of the project, including dating to establish eruption frequency, to produce a volcanic hazards analysis. Charlotte has conducted research in Ethiopia, USA, Iceland, Europe and Tanzania. In addition to her research, she collates and communicates science on volcanic hazards and impacts to the UK government and to the United Nations to assist in efforts to reduce the impact of volcanic eruptions on the lives, livelihoods and well-being of people living with volcanoes.
