Currently, Charlie is working part-time with Lesley Henderson and George Fern of Brunel University on their NERC funded project about smart recyclable plastics.

Charlie is a regular participant in cultural events. He performs folk music at Slack Folk with Frank Jordan, tries hard to improve his guitar playing (including recently starting lessons in flamenco style).  He is a also volunteer at Colchester Arts Centre . Charlie is a keen panto fan and is currently preparing to direct Jack and the Beanstalk (December 2021, pandemic permitting!) at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester, having directed Aladdin at the same theatre in 2018.
