Professor Taltavull holds a second-cycle undergraduate degree in Economics (University of Valencia), a PhD in Economics (University of Alicante) and a Master’s degree in International Trade (Spanish Distance Education University). She’s a university professor and has been a university lecturer at Berkeley (2011-2012), Georgia State University (2012 and 2015) and FIU (2017).

 

Ever since her PhD thesis (El mercado de la vivienda en España: dos modelos de comportamiento), her research has focused on the analysis of real estate and housing markets in Spain. She has published academic articles and books, mostly on the real estate and urban economy, in Spanish and international journals and houses.

She works on four lines of research within the real estate economy: (1) behaviour of housing prices, the way they are set and how they evolve; (2) building cycle and the role of supply; (3) macroeconomic relationships of the evolution of residential and building prices (from the time she worked with Professor Quigley at Berkeley to the present), with a focus on the role of the financial-mortgage system on prices and the effect of liquidity; and (4) analysis, from the demand perspective, of the effects of immigration on the housing market (price and supply), accessibility and poverty. Over the last few years, her research activity has been mainly concerned with sustainability, energy efficiency and the housing market, a new field of study linked to two research projects (of which she is PI) within the H2020 programme: RENTALCAL and CRREM.

 

She has five five-year teaching activity periods, during which she has also designed, adapted and created new study programmes (three Master’s degrees and a UA degree in Real Estate Studies) and developed learning tools, as seen in D’Arcy and Taltavull (2009) and in Norman and Taltavull (2011), Norman et al (2011) or Taltavull (2002) – in Schulte (ed) (2002) –.

In her most relevant project on the development and application of new technologies as an educational resource, Professor Taltavull designed and directed the Miguel de Cervantes Online Library (http://cervantesvirtual.com), from its conception to one year after it became available online (1998-2000).

 

Highlights in her international activity include numerous contributions to international congresses throughout her academic life, her participation in specialist housing seminars in Europe and the United States by invitation, and an active presence in international societies (as a member of the steering committee of the European Real Estate Society – president in 2002 – and the International Real Estate Society – president in 2010 –). She is and has been a referee for the most relevant indexed academic journals (she has three international awards for leading referees from different Emerald-related journals) in both Scopus and Thomson-ISI and is editor-in-chief of the Journal of European Real Estate Research. She has received national and international academic awards for her research work. Ms Taltavull has also organised several international conferences (ERES in 2001, AREUEA in 2016) at the University of Alicante as well as multiple international seminars, and she is a member of the scientific committee of more than 40 international congresses around the world about real estate.
