Short presentation

My research examines housing and finance system development in Europe and the OECD, from both historical and contemporary perspectives within a political economy framework. My current research interests include Swedish and comparative housing policy, housing finance, construction costs, land costs and land allocation, house prices, and the role of organised interest groups in the configuration of housing provision. I’m currently based at IBF as a postdoctoral researcher.
