Assistant Professor 
Real Estate and Economic Geography
University of Groningen, 
the Netherlands

Understanding how real estate markets shape cities and their economies is what I work on. My research has been published in scientific journals such as Land Economics, Ecological Economics, Landscape and Urban Planning, Applied Geography, the Journal of Regional Science, and the Journal of Housing Economics.

As a visiting scholar, I have spent time 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 Association for Real Estate Researchers Netherlands and as an Education Committee member of the American Real Estate Society.

I actively collaborate with international organizations, firms, and governmental agencies. Analyses by me and my various co-authors have been covered by, amongst others, the European Commission, Business Insider, Statistics Netherlands, CBRE, Arcadis, and the OECD.
