Jessica De Loma

Vice Director

Jessica holds a master’s degree in Toxicology and a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences from Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. During the last 5 years, her research has focused on understanding how indigenous communities in the Andes Mountains are exposed to toxic metals through their natural environment. Experienced within Molecular Epidemiology, Genetics and Toxicology, her Ph.D. journey sparked her interest in Public Health while she traveled to communities in Bolivia situated around Lake Poopó. 

As a passionate communicator, she has been an ambassador for Karolinska’s higher education programs, written blogs for the Science Communication platform Crastina and Karolinska’s student magazine Medicor, and organized seminars and events on how to communicate science effectively and promote an entrepreneurial spirit among students. While carrying out her Ph.D., Jessica also developed an interest in project management that she wishes to explore further as part of the SOGH family.
