Charlotte Lee

BSc, MSc, DPhil, CPsychol

Research Associate in Behavioural Sciences

I am a Chartered Psychologist and Research Associate at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences. I completed my DPhil at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.

Research Interests

I am interested in behavioural interventions that address disorders and disease. I have focused on left-behind groups including people with mental illness and ethnic minorities. My expertise spans intervention development, qualitative methods and feasibility testing. 

Current Research

My postdoctoral research aims to develop an intervention for people with circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders. During my doctoral research, I developed a weight management intervention for people with serious mental illness. I also served as a Junior Dean at Brasenose College, Oxford. 


I was awarded a BSc Psychology and Language Sciences from UCL and a MSc Clinical Neurodevelopmental Sciences from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London. In 2016, I returned to UCL at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health as a research assistant. In 2018, I joined Oxford.
