Assistant Professor
Department of Economic Geography
University of Groningen, the Netherlands


Real estate location is at the core of my work as an Assistant Professor of Real Estate and Urban Economics. In 2019, I was awarded tenure.

Recently, I have worked as a visiting scholar at the Gran Sasso Science Institute in l'Aquila and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris.

To build societal relevance, I initiate joint research projects with public and private organizations. My collaborations include work with people from the OECD and global companies in real estate services. In addition, I have consulted for institutions across layers of Dutch government, Statistics Netherlands, regional media outlets, and private industry.
