I am a professor in Real Estate Finance at UCL. My research area is in the field of real asset finance. A large part had focussed on the intersection of asset pricing and spatial dynamics. I am also interested in market microstructure of real assets and the role of institutional investors. I have set up and direct a virtual centre at UCL, the Affordable Housing Group where the focus has been on working with strategic stakeholders to provide transparency on the market for affordable housing, for example through the Shared Ownership Data Initiative.
I have published over 20 peer-reviewed papers in leading field academic journals such as the Journal of Corporate Finance, Journal of Banking and Finance, Regional Science and Urban Economics, Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, Energy Economics. My research has been praised through research and industry awards including best paper awards (RICS , Homer Hoyt Institute , Cushman and Wakefield) and funding awards (Real Estate Research Institute, University of Reading Research Endowment Trust Fund) .
I have worked on various funded research and advisory projects for government (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities) local government, and non-profit providers as well as key stakeholder organisations (CASE, G15, National Housing Federation, Shelter, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, European Public Real Estate Association, etc.). I have expertise in project management and policy evaluation.
