PhD defence ceremony

Economic activity in labour, goods and housing markets is subject to strong fluctuations. Where finding a job or selling a house can take a couple of days at certain times, at others it can take more than two years. Florian Sniekers investigates frictions and volatility in labour and housing markets, to help explain observed cycles in unemployment and vacancies and the dynamics of housing prices.
