Personal profile

Research interests

I joined Bond University in 2009 from Griffith University where I taught among other things, tourism economics, service operations management, project management and event management.

My PhD was completed in environmental economics, and the thesis investigated information effects in valuation of non-market environmental goods.

My research and consultancy interests lie primarily in tourism and environmental economics. I have published a number of papers related to evaluation of tourism events, hospitality management and tourism and hospitality management curriculum development in international journals.

In the distant past I worked in the leisure and recreation industries in Australia, the U.K and USA. Prior to joining academia, I worked for Hilton Hotels Corporation in the human resource department of a major casino hotel property.
