Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow 2021-2023
Research: Poisson, symplectic and generalized complex geometry
Charlotte studied physics and mathematics at the universities of Heidelberg (Germany) and Cambridge (UK), before embarking on a PhD in string theory at Cambridge. Her strong interest in geometry prompted her to investigate some of the mathematical structures underlying high-energy physics and string theory, specializing in generalized complex geometry.
After defending her PhD thesis in late 2018, Charlotte moved to KU Leuven (Belgium) as a postdoctoral researcher in pure mathematics. She has recently been awarded both a Junior Postdoctoral Fellowship by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship by the European Union to investigate mirror symmetry in generalized complex geometry, which brought her to MIT.
