MSc Health Policy, Planning & FinancingContact Amir Mohsenpour
I am a medical doctor with interest in advanced statistical methodology working in epidemiology and health services research.
Currently, I am working as a research associate at Bielefeld University’s Department of Population Medicine in Germany exploring contextual health effects of urban housing environment on marginalized and disadvantaged population groups, mainly refugees and people experiencing homelessness. Methodologically, I am interested in evidence review and statistical methods for assessing health effects of non-health policies in observational study designs. Other projects cover topics of antimicrobial resistance and public health workforce training.
As an elected member on the board of the German Network of Young Professionals in Public Health (noeg.org) I am working on a vision for Germany’s future public health workforce education and interdisciplinarity in the public health services system.
Research interests or career goals
Professionally, my aim is to formalize and improve the intersection between public health services and public health research in order to improve health, ensure the practical value of public health research and guide evidence-informed public health decision-making. For this, I am continuing my career in public health academia while simultaneously working towards registration as a medical consultant in public health services.
