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 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 scholars across four continents, people from the OECD, and international real estate companies. I have contributed knowledge of real estate and sustainable land use to various international policy working groups, all layers of the Dutch government, Statistics Netherlands, and various private actors.
