overview

My primary research interests lie within the areas of sustainable tourism development and collaborative planning, with particular interest in climate change, justice, and ethics. The undergraduate and graduate courses I instruct address tourism impacts, heritage tourism, methodological and theoretical issues in tourism research. My pedagogic approach strives towards community service learning, aiming at mutual educational, industry and community benefits. I serve on Master's and PhD graduate committees within and external to the department, as well as on various administrative committees and journal editorial boards.
