Personal profile

Research summary

I’m a social geographer interested in the inequalities created through the ownership of land and housing. I coordinate the Housing Observatory, a collaboration between LISER and the Luxembourg Housing Ministry focused on the analysis of housing data and policies. I have published on Haussmann’s transformation of Paris, on gentrification linked to the private rental sector in the United Kingdom (buy-to-let gentrification) and on the application to the social sciences of Alain Badiou's ideas. I am currently studying the consequences for housing production and local economic development of Luxembourg’s highly unequal landownership structure.
