Talent Seminar
14 November 2018, UCL, Central House, 14 Upper Woburn Place, London WC1H 0NN

The Society of Property Researchers has a number of aims and objectives. These include: ”to support and further the interests of the property research community” and “to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of interest to property researchers”.

In line with these objectives, the SPR PhD Talent Seminar provided a showcase for the five selected finalists to present their research. Topics included the reasons why developers engage in green building practices, the economic impacts of “Help to Buy”, the impact of the media on house prices and consumption, quantifying the effects on mental health of poor living conditions, and the amenity value of shopping places.

The presenters were from Cambridge University, the University of Reading, the London School of Economics and University College London.

The event was hosted by UCL, and the presentations elicited questions and vigorous discussion from the audience.

Many congratulations to the finalists Hayoung Kim, Ijeoma (Jane) Emeghe, and Wen-Te (Brian) Chiang, and to the winners Alizara (Lisa) Juangbhanich and Xiaolun Yu.
