Professor Franz Fuerst and Professor Martin Dixon have been recognised as Fellows by the Academy of Social Sciences. The Academy’s fellowship is drawn from across the full range of social sciences, and includes individuals within the academic, public, private and third sectors.

Professor Fuerst is Professor of Real Estate and Urban Economics, a Cambridge University Land Society Fellow, and a Fellow-Commoner at Trinity Hall. His research interests span several areas across real estate, including ‘green’ real estate economics, financial analysis of sustainable investments, portfolio and risk management, real estate market forecasting, and spatial economics.

Professor Fuerst said of his appointment:

“The social sciences play a vital role for understanding how people and their environments are tightly interlinked. My own research focusses on the real estate market implications of improving the quality of the built environment to the benefit of both people and planet. I am honoured to join the distinguished Fellows of the Academy in the effort to guide these societal transformations with critical thinking and empirical evidence.”

Professor Dixon is the Director of the Cambridge Centre for Property Law, the Stuart Bridge Fellow in Law, and Professor of the Law of Real Property. His research encompasses land law, land registration, the law of mortgages, the law of co-ownership, proprietary estoppel, and international law.
