Assistant Professor 
Real Estate and Economic Geography
University of Groningen (

Understanding the economic value of real estate and urban growth processes is at the core of my work. My work has been published in scientific journals such as Land Economics, Ecological Economics, Landscape and Urban Planning, Applied Geography, and the Journal of Housing Economics.

In 2019, I was awarded tenure and I have been a visiting scholar at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris and the Gran Sasso Science Institute in Italy. Currently, I serve on the Board of the Netherlands Association for Real Estate Researchers (VOGON) and as a committee member of the American Real Estate Society.

I have contributed knowledge about real estate markets and sustainable land use to international policy organisations, major firms, and various Dutch governmental agencies.
