Currículum breu

I was born in Palma de Mallorca (1972). I am senior university lecturer (profesora Titular de Universidad) at the Department of Applied Economics of the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) since 2004. Graduated in Economics from the Universitat de Barcelona (1995), I obtained the extraordinary prize of the degree. I finish my PhD in Economics from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2000.

I have teaching experience in undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate studies, both at the Carlos III University of Madrid and at the UIB. The last subjects taught are 'Industrial Economics' in the Economics and Business Faculty, and `Tourism system´ in the Master of Tourism Economics.

Researcher specialized in issues related to the labour and education economics, industrial economics, and tourism economics. Since the completion of my doctoral thesis on human capital and entrepreneurship issues, I have published in several international journals. As a result, I have two six-year research terms (sexenios) granted by the ministry.

My most recent publications are related to education, gender and job insertion for young people. As a result of this collaboration, I have produced numerous scientific-technical reports and recently I have just published in Emerging Adulthood, in the International Journal of Lifelong Education, as well as in the International Journal of Adolescence and Youth, among others.

A second line of work, is articulated through different projects related with P2P technologies, digital transition, and the tourism sector.

Finally, a third line is the one developed within the framework of innovation, training and the tourism sector. Their results have been published twice in Annals of Tourism Research and 6 times in Tourism Economics, as well as in the prestigious Springer Publishing Editorial.

Preliminary versions of my published articles have been presented at more than forty national and international conferences, one of which received the award for the best article of the international conference, 4th Conference of the international association for tourism economics, Ljubljana, Slovenia 2013. My most recent participacions in international congresses are: International Tourism And Hospitality Management Congress in Sarajevo 2021. I have also presented two new articles at the Conference of the International Association for Tourism Economics, in Perpignan 2022 and in the Encuentro de Economia Aplicada in Palma 2022, dealing with innovation and tourism.

I have led two doctoral thesis. I have supervised Vicente Ramos's doctoral thesis on training decisions, which was defended in 2004 with the title 'Tourist models and the labor market: considerations for the case of the Balearic Islands' and more recently supervised Mariona Luis's doctoral thesis on innovation and tourism that was defended in July 2021 with the title 'The role of innovation in the rejuvenation of a mature sun and beach tourist destination'.

I have participated in several competitive research projects, a total of 6 in the last 10 years. I have also participated in various teaching innovation projects. Result of one of these projects is the publication 'Price discrimination: a classroom experiment', published in the Journal of Economic Education.

I am part of the Research Group on Education and Citizenship at the University of the Balearic Islands and have collaborated for years with the research group on International Economics.

Finally, in the area of university academic management, I have more than 20 years of experience in various academic positions. I have been the Director of the Hospitality School of the Balearic Islands (2015-2023). I have also been the Director of the Department of Applied Economics of the University of the Balearic Islands from 2007 to 2015. Previously, I have been Deputy Director of the Department of Applied Economics.
