Amir Mohsenpour is a medical doctor, currently working in public health and health services research and doing his doctorate degree in the field of social epidemiology. In his research he focuses on assessing housing deterioration and quantifying contextual neighbourhood effects on mental health of asylum seekers and refugees.

At Heidelberg University he graduated in medicine (2017), before being selected to the Heidelberg Graduate School of Global Health (2018) and obtaining a certificate in Global Health (2019). Working at the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (formerly: Public Health) in 2012-2014, he built up the interdisciplinary Global Health Society serving as an open forum for students and teachers to discuss and exchange on current issues in global health.

Accompanying his medical studies, he was active in the German Medical Students Association (bvmd e.V.) and its European and international affiliations, serving as National Public Health Officer and a member of the executive board coordinating the association’s external relations. As part of the Globalisation and Health Initiative (GandHI), he worked on a preparatory book for students interested in elective and internships abroad, sensitizing for public and global health issues.

He is an active member of the German Network of Young Professionals in Public Health (NÖG – Nachwuchsnetzwerk Öffentliche Gesundheit)since 2018 working on drafting a vision on Germany’s future public health education and interdisciplinarity in the public health services system.

Since April 2019 Amir Mohsenpour is working at the Department of Population Medicine and Health Services Research (AG2) at Bielefeld University.
