Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I would like to cordially thank you for visiting my website. I thought it would be a good idea to create this website with the aim to communicate effectively my work in tourism and air transport economics, geography and regional development to the global audience.
I strategically envisage to creatively bridge the apparent gap between academia and industry in the air transport and tourism sectors. I do so by using an explicitly systemic and synthetic approach to address complexity in the business triangle formed by airlines, airport and tourism destination authorities.
To realise this vision, I rely on five pillars, namely:
    • I undertake research of high quality standards (either alone or in collaboration with other academics and PhD candidates) with direct implications for air transport and tourism managers as well as policymakers at different levels;
    • I lecture at high academic level and deliver executive courses of added value to senior and middle managers of airlines, airports and tourism destination authorities;
    • I participate in consortia bidding for research funding and I capitalise on consultancy opportunities in air transport and tourism;
    • I engage into networking as keynote/invited speaker and panellist in major international academic and industry conferences and fora; and
    • I sit on the executive boards of academic societies and hopefully soon of air transport and tourism companies.
All the above pillars are solidly founded on my continuously growing experience in research and scholarship; lecturing, supervising and curriculum design; enterprise activities; as well as management and leadership.
If you endorse, share, or just feel inspired by this vision, I am looking forward to working with you!
