Event Description

She assumed that landowners’ land ownership behaviors were at the edge of urban development and changes in urban space and that modeling their behavioral norms could provide insights into urban planning.

She constructed a model of landowner preferences for land ownership patterns that take into account landowner heterogeneity and time preference. The model is validated using the old land registers used in modern times in Japan.
