Charlie started his PhD at SPRU in September 2016 following an MSc in Science and Technology Policy. Prior to coming to Sussex, Charlie worked as a solicitor in London specialising in environmental and public law. This work, which often involved researching and analysing government policies, sparked Charlie's interest in studying policy issues academically. His current research focuses on how science policies can be designed to maximise the impact of research on addressing real world problems such as poverty alleviation and environmental degradation.
