I have a BSc in Mathematics (first class), a MSc in Tourism and a PhD in Air Transport and Tourism Management. Before joining the University, I worked in air transport consultancy.
I have now been involved in the teaching, research and consultancy of air transport and tourism for over 30 years and have developed two key specialist interests. The first is airport management, economics and regulation. The second is the analysis of tourism and aviation demand and the relationship between the tourism and aviation industries.
In addition to teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate tourism and transport modules at the University, I also get involved with the University's programme of aviation short courses. Externally I have given presentations and papers at many different academic and industry conferences throughout the world.
