Based on rich empirical data from field experiments, he investigates different forms of discrimination against migrants with a Turkish background when they apply for rental housing in Germany. His stay in Washington, DC, aims to include the broad range of empirical studies on discrimination in the U.S. housing market in his research, particularly on the question of how discrimination and residential segregation are intertwined.
