Born and raised in Fulda, Germany, Till Seuring, T.Seuring@uea.ac.uk, holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of Bamberg (Germany) in Economics and a Master's degree from the University of Göttingen (Germany) in International Economics. He also studied for several months in Argentina and Mexico. He’s currently working on his PhD at the University of East Anglia in the UK, investigating the economics of diabetes in low- and middle-income countries. He’s particularly interested in how diabetes affects people economically and who it affects most. One of the goals is that the better understanding of the relation between diabetes and its economic burden can lead to better strategies to prevent or reduce the economic burden. Prior to starting as a PhD student he worked at the International Diabetes Federation in Brussels (Belgium) as a health economist.
