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




The geography of real estate and land markets is what I work on.

My work has been published in journals such as Land Economics, the
Journal of Regional Science, Applied Geography, Landscape and Urban Planning, Ecological Economics, and the Journal of Housing Economics. 

Engaging with firms, governmental agencies, and policy organizations as well as with fellow colleagues is an inherent part of how I work. Analyses of mine have been covered by, amongst others, the OECD, Business Insider, the Dutch Parliament, Statistics Netherlands, CBRE, and the European Commission.

At the University of Groningen, where I was awarded tenure in 2019 at the age of 30, I coordinate courses on real estate and land markets besides training students in geographic research across BSc, MSc, and PhD levels.

I serve on the board of the Association for Real Estate Researchers Netherlands and on the American Real Estate Society's Education Committee. Also, I have held positions as visiting scholar and consultant at the OECD in Paris.
