As a visiting scholar, Schery Bokhari’s research focuses on documenting the nature and magnitude of capital consumption of commercial property structures in the United States. Capital consumption refers to the total cost of the usage and aging of the built asset, including both capital improvement expenditures plus net depreciation. This research is sponsored by the Real Estate Roundtable (RER) and data is contributed by leading industry data providers such as Real Capital Analytics (RCA), National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF) and Green Street Advisors (GSA). In addition, Schery also oversees research projects initiated by industry partners of the MIT/CRE.
Schery completed his PhD in urban and real estate studies from DUSP, during which he was a teaching assistant for several courses in the MSRED program. Schery was also part of the development team that pioneered the Commercial Property Price Indices (CPPI) at the MIT/CRE back in 2006.
