Charlotte Andriessen started her academic career in 2011 at Maastricht University, where she studied the Bachelor of Health Sciences with a specialization in Human Biology. After completing the bachelor, she enrolled in the master program Nutrition and Health at Wageningen University in 2014 and specialized in Nutritional Physiology and Health Status. As part of her master study, Charlotte did a 4-month internship at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) at the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports. During this internship, she wrote a research article about the effects of weight loss on appetite and food preferences in overweight and obese adults which got published in the scientific journal Appetite. Her supervisors were Prof. Anne Raben and Dr. Pia Christensen.
In February 2018, Charlotte returned to Maastricht to start her PhD at Maastricht University in the research group of Prof. Patrick Schrauwen. Her current project is about the effect of limiting eating time during the day (aka time restricted eating) on liver glycogen storage and insulin sensitivity of adults that are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
