Research

Jerram is a research fellow in the Cancer Society Social and Behavioural Research Unit within the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine. His background is in development geography, having completed an MA exploring the role of sport in development in India, and a PhD examining long-term continuity and change in the livelihoods of two rural communities in Sierra Leone.

His PhD led to further research assessing the impact of the 2014-2016 West African Ebola epidemic on livelihoods in the same two communities, which nurtured an interest in health research.

He is now involved in supportive care and smokefree research, and is particularly interested in inequality within these research streams.
