Melissa uses economics to evaluate the core factors driving the success of real estate development and investment projects. Using quantitative methods, Melissa performs macroeconomic assessments, demand modelling and competitor bench-marking for various real estate asset classes. Melissa’s work includes:

  • Performance assessment and bench-marking of major retail developments in Singapore and Indonesia, including regional and super-regional malls and Singapore’s Orchard Road shopping belt
  • Demographic modelling and assessment of future housing demand in Abu Dhabi
  • Supportable rent forecasting for greenfield oncology treatment facility 

Melissa has lived in Singapore, Indonesia and the UK. Before joining Cistri, she worked in the Singapore Government to create strategies to develop Singapore’s transport engineering sector.

I use economics and research to generate better economic and social outcomes for cities and the communities they serve.
