Knowledge should preferably enhance academic progress, inspire students, enable the practice community and energize public discussions -
all at the same time.
My training is in sociology and anthropology. I am the Professor of Cultural and Heritage Tourism, Associate Head (Research) at the School of Social Sciences, and Co-Director of the Tourism Research and Education Network (TRENd) at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). I spent two decades at Copenhagen Business School before moving to Australia.
Besides tourism-in-society issues, my other research areas include state-market relations, art and cultural development, place branding, cross-cultural management, and international business strategy.
