I am a full Professor and Director of Real Estate at a large university where I run our Real Estate Development and Finance Program. I have previously worked cases on brokerage, diminution of value, investment and valuation.

Over the past decade, I have published over 30 peer reviewed research articles that have been cited roughly 500 times. I have an h-index of 12 meaning 12 articles with at least 12 citations. In this time, I have written content for trade groups such as the Appraisal Institute, Counselors of Real Estate (CRE), CRE Financial Council (CREFC), International Facility Management Association (IFMA), NAIOP, and the Urban Land Institute (ULI).

I have received grants, or funds to advance real estate research, from CBRE, Inc., the Real Estate Research Institute and the National Science Foundation (NSF).
