Charlotte is the Singer Fellow in Medical Law & Ethics at Exeter College.
Her research interests concern questions relating to the role of law in regulating the transformative potential and risks of emerging technologies. In particular, the nature of the expertise required in regulatory decison making and the role that substantive ethics might play in bridging epistemic gaps in decision making characterised by high technological complexity and uncertainty.
At present Charlotte is working on a project that seeks to understand how law ought to understand the nature of the expertise rendered by machine learning expert recommender systems and what implications various understandings of tha expertise have for a range of particular legal doctrines.
Charlotte completed her DPhil at Balliol College, under the supervision of Professor Liz Fisher and Professor Jonathan Herring. Her thesis focused on the legal regulation of CRISPR gene drives in non-human organisms.
Previously Charlotte was a Stipendiary Lecturer in Law at Pembroke College, Oxford and taught Criminal Law at the London School of Economics. She was also Graduate Teaching Assistant in Medical Law & Ethics for the Faculty, and a tutor in Jurisprudence at Exeter and St. Anne's. Charlotte was previously a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Birmingham.
Charlotte graduated with an LLB from the University of Birmingham, ranking first in her year before going on to study for an LLM at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.
