Jessica L. Rohmann

2022 Intensive Track Female Science Talents

Jessica L. Rohmann recently started the Research Group “Neuroepidemiology” at the Center for Stroke Research Berlin at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany. Originally trained as a biochemist, she pursued a Master’s degree in Public Health and has been hooked on epidemiology ever since. In her research and teaching activities, Jessica seeks to promote the correct application of modern methods in observational medical research. Her strong advocacy for rigorous, high-quality methods training for early-career researchers is evidenced by her leading roles in developing the Berlin Epidemiological Methods Colloquium, the Peerspectives peer-review training program, and the Health Data Sciences PhD Program at the Charité. When off her computer screen, you can find Jessica on stage with her Berlin-based short-form improvised comedy team or dancing Lindy Hop.

I want to improve the quality of epidemiological methods used in neurovascular research. I want this, because it is important to create high-quality evidence to ultimately get the right answers to important clinical questions and inform healthcare decision-making. I can do this, because I am comfortable working at the interdisciplinary junction between theoretical, methods-development work and real-world, practical application.
