I am an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and the Camrost Feldcorp Chair in Real Estate.

Prior to joining UofT, I was a professor at UC Berkeley and UBC. My current academic projects are on housing, gentrification, transportation, homelessness, remote work, and residential segregation. My public speaking is often on the impact of recent urban trends on real estate markets.

I am on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Economic Geography, and a consultant for the World Bank. My research has been funded by the Gates Foundation, the NSF, the NBER, and the SSHRC and it has been covered by the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, and TIME magazine. 

Recently, I co-founded Cities in Motion Lab, a research lab that helps cities worldwide compare their transportation and accessibility performance with peer cities and improve policy based on best practices. 

I received my PhD from the University of Toronto in 2013.
