Roni Golan

Roni Golan, Postdoctoral Fellow for the Ziman Center's UCLA Gilbert Program in Real Estate, Finance and Urban Economics and the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies, is a researcher in the field of real estate economics. His research primarily focuses on seller and buyer decision-making and price behavior in the housing market. His Ph.D. thesis specifically concentrated on consequences of imperfection in the Israeli housing market. In this context, Golan studied the price effect of the currency substitution experienced by the Israeli real estate market in the past decade and the efficiency and equity effects of improved price information shock that recently occurred in the Israeli housing market.

Golan earned his B.Sc. degree in Structural Engineering (cum laude), as well as M.Sc. (cum laude) and Ph.D. degrees in Urban Planning from the Technion - Israel institute of Technology. His current work includes studies of the bi-causal correlation between housing prices and crime and the relationship between housing affordability and migration.
