Research Affiliate

Dr Charlotte Hammer is the Everitt Butterfield Research Fellow in Biomedical Sciences at Downing College, University of Cambridge and a member of the Cambridge Infectious Diseases (CID) Steering Committee. She specializes in the epidemiology of emerging and high consequence infectious diseases, covering aspects such as risk factor identification, development of novel surveillance and outbreak response systems, and global health security. Her current primary research interests are outbreaks at the human-animal-environment interface using a One Health lens, and the epidemiology of infectious diseases in conflict zones and other complex and fragile settings.

Dr Hammer completed a PhD in the Health Protection Research Unit for Emergency Preparedness and Response and field epidemiology training with the European Centre for Disease Control. Having worked for and across academia, national and international health emergency response, policy and the UN system, she has been involved in the COVID-19 response in the European Union and Papua New Guinea and in the Ebola response in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In addition to her academic work, she maintains a strong involvement in public health emergency response and epidemic intelligence through deployments with organizations such as the World Health Organization and the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (for which she is also the CID Focal Point) as well as through capacity building for field epidemiology training programs across the world.
