  • Research topic : The impact of sea-level rise and government funding for coastal erosion risk management on commercial property price

Gyojun obtained an MSc in Real Estate from the University of Manchester. In this degree he developed his dissertation research for the commercial market and urban policies and passed this with a distinction, and an MSc in real estate finance from the Henley Business School with a distinction. For his dissertation titled “Impact of flooding on the value of commercial property: Does Climate Change Affect Commercial Real Estate Prices?” he was awarded the postgraduate annual prize for the best dissertation by the Investment Property Forum. Gyojun has working experience in commercial real estate research for the Government of South Korea.

Gyojun’s research is focused on sustainability and resilience in the areas of investment, valuation and appraisal and urban policy planning. He adopts financial analysis to identify how climate risk will affect pricing decisions in commercial and residential property markets. He is highly motivated by the scientific method of the bathtub approach for modelling sea level rise to forecast the impact of climate change, and the empirical analysis is implemented with the econometric models of regression analysis and GIS-based spatial autocorrelation models. This approach has a unique structure that affords it an affinity with quantitative and qualitative research.
