Ivan Frankovic is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in economics at the Technical University of Vienna and is simultaneously employed at the Vienna Institute of Demography as a Junior Researcher (since October 2014). In his research he addresses the link between medical progress, health expenditures and population ageing to better understand the impact of medical innovations on health systems. Furthermore, he studies the impact of climate change on health and health care systems and explores how individual health demand reacts to environmental influences. His main focus lies on the mathematical modelling of these processes as well as their numerical simulation.
Mr. Frankovic received a M.Sc. degree in Mathematics from the University of Regensburg in 2013. He has written his master thesis in the field of mathematical modelling at the UC Berkeley (2012-2013) and worked in San Francisco for a health-care policy consultancy (2013-2014).
