Charlotte Collingwood graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2019, where she studied Natural Sciences (specialising in Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour). She then completed her M.Sc. in Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sheffield in 2020, where she investigated the effects of alcohol and alcohol-placebo on response inhibition and the validity of different modelling methods.
Charlotte is now studying for her D.Phil. in the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit under the supervision of Prof. Rafal Bogacz. Her research is focussed on theories of addiction and other compulsive habits within the brain. Specifically, she is investigating computational models of habit formation, and how they might explain behaviour under normal and drug-addicted conditions.
