Sarah obtained a first class honours degree in Psychology from the University of Sussex in 2009, and an MSc in Clinical Nutrition, with distinction, at Roehampton University in 2010. She joined UCL in 2010 as a research assistant before starting her PhD later that year investigating weight loss in overweight and obese older adults under the supervision of Professor Jane Wardle. Sarah completed her PhD in 2014, and now works as a research associate in the Health Behaviour Research Centre.
Dr Jackson's research focuses on obesity, energy balance and health. Of particular interest are:
- the causes and consequences of obesity and weight change
- the links between health-related behaviours and the onset and
progression of chronic diseases, particularly cancer
- the impact of chronic diseases on health and wellbeing
- the ways in which social factors, such as discrimination and
interpersonal relationships, influence health and wellbeing.
To do this work she makes use of large, population-based datasets including the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, the Health and Retirement Study, and the Health Survey for England.
