Dr Frauke Becker
Frauke joined HERC as a senior researcher in May 2017. Her research interests include the economic analysis of lifestyle choices and implications for public health policy with a special focus on obesity; preference elicitation by means of discrete choice experiments; and economic evaluations of health care and public health interventions. She is currently working on a number of economic evaluations alongside clinical trials in diabetic and pre-diabetic populations.
She has previously held appointments at Hannover Medical School (MHH), the University of Aberdeen, Brunel University, and the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists where she contributed to the development of NICE guidelines. Prior to her appointment at HERC, she worked at the Health Economics Group within the Institute of Health & Society at Newcastle University where she was involved in a number of economic evaluations for public health interventions and conducted some preference elicitation work.
