Victor Couture

Assistant Professor

My research is in urban economics and transportation. Current projects investigate the consequences of gentrification, the potential for e-commerce to reduce spatial inequality, the efficiency of urban transportation systems, and preferences for social interactions. I received my PhD from the University of Toronto in 2013, and worked as an assistant professor of real estate at UC Berkeley before joining UBC in 2020.
