My main teaching and research activities focus on the relationships between Cultural Heritage Tourism, Sustainable Tourism Development and Tourism Marketing. I also conducted and participated in several consulting projects in the fields of Tourism Marketing and Management in Central Asia, New Zealand and the UK.
I completed a PhD degree in Tourism from Auckland University of Technology and hold a Master degree in International Relations from University Paris-Est Marne la Vallée and a Bachelor in Business Administration from Kedge Business School in France. I have over 15 years of experience in teaching Bachelor and Master Degree Programmes in Tourism Management and Marketing in an international context. I was an associate programme leader for the development and the launch of a Tourism and Hospitality program at KIMEP University in Kazakhstan. I am now the programme leader in Dumfries of the new Master in Management and Sustainable Tourism with the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow.
