I am currently Director of the Institute of Real Estate in the Business School of Kingston University overseeing the Postgraduate, Undergraduate and Apprenticeship Real Estate courses. My responsibilities include overseeing the management of the courses, ensuring they remain competitive in the market, a coherent whole and that students benefit positively from them. I have obtained much knowledge and experience by working in industry (St James's, West End London) as Global Head of Asset Management (assets app. £2Bn). I obtained my Masters in Real Estate in 1999 (UK and The Netherlands).
As Senior Lecturer I focus on Corporate Real Estate and Strategic Cashflows and ensure the courses are well linked with industry. I am also embarking on a PhD in Corporate Real Estate and Wellbeing.
