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


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

Through my work with public and private organizations, I generate actionable insights. My collaborations include joint efforts with people from the OECD and global companies in real estate services. Also, I have consulted across layers of the Dutch government, Statistics Netherlands, regional media outlets, and private industry.
