Charlotte Buckley studied Psychology and Neuroscience BSc and Psychological Methods MRes at the University of Sussex. She holds a PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Bristol (2017) where she conducted primary research investigating the psychological factors underlying human appetite control.
Following this, she worked as a Research Associate in the same group modelling the importance of psychological and environmental factors in determining food choices. She joined the University of Sheffield in 2018 as a Research Associate on the CASCADE project, developing computer models of alcohol use and related harms based on psychosocial theories. Since 2021, she has been a Research Fellow focused on advanced population health modelling.
- Research interests
Charlotte's research is focused on the development and utilisation of advanced quantitative methods, including microsimulation and agent-based models to understand and explore population-level health behaviours. She has developed a dynamic microsimulation model of population alcohol use in the United States and has used this to explore the relationship between alcohol use and liver cirrhosis. Charlotte is interested in developing new models to explore the complex psychological mechanisms and environmental factors underlying associations between socioeconomic inequalities and health behaviours such as alcohol use and food choices.
