Currently my research interests include stakeholder theory and engagement, tourism policy, power, destination management and seaside tourism. I am particularly interested in how stakeholder networks can be used as a vehicle for regenerating destinations. Furthermore, I am developing some research interests on the island of Malta. 
My teaching interest widely cover destination management, strategic management of destinations and tourism organisations, and post-mass tourism with a focus on dark tourism as well as cultural and heritage tourism.
