Professor Stephanie von Hinke Kessler Scholder

My main research interests are in health economics and applied microeconometrics. My research covers two main areas. First, I am 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, I examine 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.
