Personal profile

Biography

Nicole Black (née Au) is an Associate Professor at the Centre for Health Economics, Monash Business School. She currently holds an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) to investigate children's time investments, cognitive development and health. From 2013-2018 she was funded by an Australian National Preventive Health Agency Research Fellowship to investigate the economic consequences of childhood and adolescent obesity over the life-course. Her research has contributed to understanding the causal relationship between childhood obesity and human capital development (including academic achievement and socio-emotional skill development). She has demonstrated that the prevention of childhood obesity is likely to have substantial economic benefits over a child’s life-course, over and above those related to health. Nicole received her PhD in Health Economics from Monash University in 2012. She was awarded the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research by an Early Career Researcher in 2016.

Nicole's research interests include child health and development, economics of obesity, socioeconomic inequalities in health care utilisation and measurement issues in health and wellbeing.
