Dr Charlotte Jackson
Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology
Mortimer Market (4th floor)
  • Research Associate
  • Institute for Global Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I originally studied Natural Sciences and followed this with an MSc in Epidemiology. After two years working in the Healthcare Associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance Department at the Health Protection Agency (now Public Health England), I undertook a PhD during which I used epidemiological and mathematical modelling techniques to investigate the effects of school closures on transmission of respiratory infections. I have a broad interest in the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases and especially in the use of mathematical modelling to understand transmission dynamics.

Research Summary

I currently work mainly on the PREDICT (Prognostic Evaluation of Diagnostic IGRAs Consortium) study, a large cohort study which aims to assess the predictive value of interferon gamma release assays for the development of active tuberculosis. I am also involved in several other projects related to TB epidemiology, including comparing genotyping methods for M. tuberculosis and assessing the epidemiology of MDR-TB in Europe and progress towards WHO targets.
