Hi, I’m Charlotte

Hi, I’m Charlotte Huggins. I’m a postdoc Research Fellow working with Generation Scotland. Most of my work focuses on analysing our data, particularly the data from our CovidLife projects.

My background is in psychology, so I’m very interested in what our data can tell us about mental health. I recently graduated from the University of Aberdeen with my PhD in Mental Health, with a particular focus on emotion and autism. In 2019, I also worked for three months at Kyoto University, studying cross-cultural differences in emotion. I spent most of the first lockdown writing up my thesis, until finally submitting it and passing my viva in early 2021.

I’m particularly interested in looking at the impact the pandemic has had on mental health and well-being. Most of my time is spent on programming and data analysis, but I also have opportunities to write papers and design future studies. I designed the TeenCovidLife 3 survey and have been analysing the data from our young people. Over the next few months, I’m excited to contribute to research on Long COVID, as part of our collaboration work with other UK cohorts.

In my spare time, I enjoy studying languages and writing short stories. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to do that sitting in a café with coffee and cake again soon!
