Personal Statement

I am the Director of the Undergraduate Programme and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Marketing. I have been based in the department since moving from Australia in 2012. My research interests focus on destination branding within communities, visitor behaviour, as well as sustainability and conservation. Additionally, I am the convenor for the ethics committee within the Department of Marketing.

My research explores and examines marketing principles and theories in the context of tourism, with a focus on destination branding within communities, visitor behaviour, sustainability, and conservation. I have presented my research internationally, and have published my research in top tier journals, including: the Journal of Travel Research, Annals of Tourism Research, and Tourism Management.

My teaching has covered a range of topics at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level, including introductory marketing, market research, tourism marketing, and consumer behaviour. At the University of Strathclyde I have taught mainly at a postgraduate level (MSc), and my key areas of teaching include: Destination Marketing and Management, (International) Market Research, and International Hospitality and Tourism Management. I was nominated this year for a Teaching Excellence Award.
