I am a Senior Teaching Associate in Real Estate Finance and Economics at the Department of Land Economy and a CULS Fellow. My areas of research include housing and urban economics, household finance, and economic and urban history. In particular, I am interested in how people make their housing decisions, what factors play into these decisions and what the outcomes are to better understand housing demand and house prices.
Prior to joining the Department, I was an Advanced Researcher in the Department of International Finance and Financial Management at ZEW Mannheim (Germany) where I spearheaded the research area “Household Finance and Real Estate”, led several industry and research projects as a principal investigator and chaired the annual Real Estate and Capital Markets Network (ReCapNet) Conference.
