Michael Eber

PhD Candidate in Health Policy (G4, Decision Sciences) at Harvard University

Mike Eber’s current research interests lie in understanding health care consumer decision-making and in applying this knowledge to improve the design of policy interventions and economic evaluations. In particular, Mike is interested in accounting for heterogeneity in individual choices and preferences to make health policy interventions more targeted. Prior to entering the Harvard Health Policy PhD Program, Mike was a director at Precision Health Economics, a research consultancy, where his work focused on measuring and communicating value in health care. Mike also held prior positions at Resources for the Future, where he conducted policy research to combat the spread of antibiotic resistance and hospital infections, and at Abt Associates, where he conducted economic evaluations of proposed government regulations. Mike received a bachelor’s degree in operations research and financial engineering and a certificate in engineering and management systems from Princeton University.
