Personal profile

Research interests

In my academic research I focus on the financial economics of relate to real estate markets. Typically, I opt for empirical studies in which the facts are leading.

At the moment I focus my attention of three main topics:

  • Risk and return of real estate investments
  • Sustainability in the real estate market
  • Financial literacy of decision makers

On Mondays, and Tuesdays, I work on my academic research and teach undergraduates of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (Tisem) and can be reached at: office K318, tel. 013-4663417,

On Wednesday, Thursdays and Fridays I translate my academic knowledge into practical insights for real estate professionals at TIAS, the Business School of Tilburg and Eindhoven and can be reached at: officeT111, tel. 013-4663417,
