Real estate value and location are at the core of my work as an Assistant Professor of Real Estate and Urban Economics.
In 2019, I was awarded tenure and I have, before, held positions 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.
My research projects include joint efforts with people from the OECD and international real estate companies. Also, I have consulted across layers of the Dutch government as well as for Statistics Netherlands and various private actors.
- Understanding risk in US real estate markets (analyzing USD 1 trillion worth of investments)
- Recently published: a study on the effect of asylum seeker centers on nearby house prices in the Netherlands (Journal of Housing Economics)
- Recently published: a study on the monetary and non-monetary valuation of green space using Amsterdam house prices (Ecological Economics)
In order to better monitor real estate markets worldwide, I am building an artificial intelligence project. My project won the University of Groningen 2018 Data Science Tender and I am joyfully growing the team and global support. More news coming!
