I am an urban geographer and environmental psychologist (PhD 2013, Graduate Center of the City University of New York), now working as a Lecturer in the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield, UK. In 2017-18 I will also be a visiting researcher at the Urban Institute at the University of Sheffield
My research focuses on the historical and geographical circumstances under which housing may be treated as a financial asset. I currently study the role institutional investors are playing in rental housing markets since the global financial crisis, and the emergence of new rent-backed financial assets associated with this process. Another strand of my work examines how digital platforms are changing the way we buy, sell, manage, and relate to residential real estate.
