Research Summary

Topics for PhD applicants

My research areas are summarised below. I am looking for motivated PhD applicants in the field of real estate and infrastructure finance Relevant field for research students' supervision include real estate finance, real estate economics, 

Spatial Linkages for Asset Pricing
Spatial dynamics can affect both households and investors and subsequently the price of companies and real assets. What goes beyond a mere headquarter location of the company is identifying the relevant locations for the performance. It it is essential to account for distance in order to extract additional information from real assets that was not possible to capture so far.

Affordable Housing
We assess the vehicles for the affordable housing provision. From an institutional investor’s point of view, while being a form of real estate, affordable housing is closely linked to public finance and should be viewed rather as social infrastructure, the provision of which has been enabled via public subsidies and grants. Through close collaboration with stakeholders such as public institutions and institutional investors, we aim to provide relevant and applied research solutions to the global social challenges of our society.
