I teach intensively in the Bachelor’s programme in Human Geography and Spatial Planning, where I’ve been involved in the redesign of the programme (2019-2021) and coordinate two courses: Fundamenten and Wetenschap & Samenleving.

Moreover, I teach in the Master’s programme in Urban and Economic Geography. In that programme, I am until 2023-2024 one of the thesis coordinators, and of course I also supervise several theses myself each year. I used to teach a course on Regions in European Policy with my esteemed colleague Ton van Rietbergen (now retired), and I used to participate in a yearly excursion to the Ruhr area, which marked the start of each new cohort.

In earlier years, I was heavily involved and for some time coordinated our Minor in Geography, offered to Bachelor students of Economics at the Utrecht School of Economics. The programme, which is chosen by up to 40 students of every cohort, consists of six courses plus the BA thesis.

La Défense: benefits of density in a world city?

Going further back in time, at the Vrije Universiteit I was involved for many years in the first-year excursion Veldwerk Zuid-Limburg of the Aarde & Economie programme; in the course on Urban Economics offered at the Amsterdam University College; and in the STREEM Master’s programme offered by the department of Spatial Economics.

With my doctoral supervisor Henri de Groot I spent some time on his useful Core-Periphery modeling tool, which is available from his page.

I make regular appearances as a guest lecturer at the Amsterdam School of Real Estate.
