Frank has rich experience in model- based analysis of trade and trade policies, including non-tariff measures, international regulatory co-operation, trade in raw materials as well as in agricultural policy design and policy monitoring. Economic modelling is central in his research. Between 2006 - 2024 he was with the OECD in Paris where he led policy analysis and modelling in the Directorate for Trade and Agriculture. His team developed the OECD trade model METRO.

Before joining the OECD he has worked at the Agricultural Economics Research Institute (LEI, now Wageningen Economic Research) and at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

He has held associate, visiting and lecturing positions at various academic institutions, including Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Centre for Chinese Agricultural Policy at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing; Mansholt Graduate School, Wageningen; the Centre of Policy Studies, Monash University, Melbourne; ESSEC Business School, Paris. He has lectured on microeconomics, economic modelling and on international trade policy for varied target groups, including in GTAP short courses.
