I am interested in passionate HDR students who are interested in advancing hospitality and tourism research. I have successfully supervised 5 HDR students to completion in the areas of crisis management in quarantine hotels, photo taking behaviour and selfie phenomenon in tourism, littering in national parks, hotel food waste, and geoparks development.
I have supervised HDR students who have adopted a range of research methods and analytical tools such as Leximancer and Nvivo (in-depth interviews, focus groups, secondary data analysis and content analysis), and SPSS, SEM (questionnaire surveys).
