Clinical Assistant Professor
My research focuses on youth and emerging adult development through educational tourism. I’m also interested in tourism and memory, sustainable tourism, and intercultural competence. I have conducted qualitative and quantitative research to understand the impact of study abroad on students’ long-term development in pro-environmental behaviors and global citizenship. I co-led study abroad programs to Australia and Fiji teaching sustainability and tourism for three summers from 2017 to 2019. I am passionate about experiential learning through tourism and leisure.
