I earned a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.

In my free time, I am enjoying listening to my record collection and reading graphic novels, and sport climbing.


I coordinate and teach courses within Tourism and Sustainability Master Programme.

  • Tourism and Sustainability in the Anthropocene, 15 credits
  • Evaluation and Planning of Tourism Sustainability, 7.5 credits
  • Tourism and Ecological Economics, 7.5 credits
  • Advanced Research Methodology and Analytical Tools, 7.5 credits


My work draws from the fields of political science, sociology, psychology, and political ecology to shed light on the socio-cultural aspects of the relationships between communities of place and local 'natures', and how tourism allows to re-negotiate these relationships.

I have worked with concepts of social-political justice, empowerment, and just destination governance.

I am an affiliated researcher working with the Environmental Social Science Research Team at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, where I am looking into the role of tourism & outdoors recreation in shaping human-nature relationships.
