Property and Housing Management Researcher, University of Tasmania

Erika Altmann is an early career qualitative researcher with a strong focus on the management of real property in its many forms. This includes housing and urban research as it applies to the apartment sector. Since completing her PhD, she has published 5 peer reviewed articles and two book chapters. She is a regular contributor to Parity – Australia’s lead industry journal on homelessness, and The conversation.

Along with Michelle Gabriel, she is a co-editor of “Multi-owned Housing in the Asia-Pacific Region: Rights, restrictions and responsibilities” which will be released by Palgrave in 2017.

Her 2016 research focused on management issues related to people experiencing dementia and living in private rental housing. Erika’s strong industry focus and background was instrumental in her gaining industry support and being able to engage with private property managers, advocacy groups and landlords.
