Profile

Stephanie von Hinke is an Endowed Professor of Health Economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam, a Reader in Economics at the University of Bristol, and a Research Associate at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Her main research interests are in health economics and applied microeconometrics. Her research covers two main areas. First, she is interested in the economics of obesity, diet and nutrition, looking at both potential causes and consequences of the recent rise in body weight, as well as at evaluating ways to improve dietary choices. Second, she examines the use of genetic data in economics research.…

Stephanie von Hinke is an Endowed Professor of Health Economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam, a Reader in Economics at the University of Bristol, and a Research Associate at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Her main research interests are in health economics and applied microeconometrics. Her research covers two main areas. First, she is interested in the economics of obesity, diet and nutrition, looking at both potential causes and consequences of the recent rise in body weight, as well as at evaluating ways to improve dietary choices. Second, she examines the use of genetic data in economics research. This interdisciplinary work includes policy-relevant applications, looking at genetic and environmental determinants of health and education, as well as methodological research using Mendelian randomization.

Stephanie has previously held an MRC Early Career Fellowship in the Economics of Health (2011-2014) at the University of York, and an ESRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Imperial College London (2009-2011). She is a Research Associate at the Centre for Market and Public Organisation (CMPO, 2009 –), at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS; 2013 –), and has held visiting positions at CornellIFS, and VU University Amsterdam.
