My research interests over the last three years involved looking at (i) the changes in young adult household formation and home ownership rates in the UK, (ii) the spatial distribution of housing affordability, (iii) house price formation. The first strand of research identifies the tightening of credit market constraints and slower earnings growth brought about by structural change in the labour market as significant factors in explaining declines of home ownership rates among the young. The second strand explores whether the mechanisms of New Economic Geography can explain the disparities in housing affordability in the UK.
