Biography My academic journey has started from studying BA in Tourism and Hospitality Management at Kinneret Academic College, on the banks of the famous Sea of Galilee. This is where the 'tourism bug' has permanently found home in my heart.

After a few years in the industry, I was back in a classroom, studying Industrial Management. Following the completion of the course, a number of years in manufacturing industry followed, and Project Management has become my career path. To progress further, I have come to Scotland to study MSc in Project Management and stayed in Scotland since then.

After two years of 9-5 post-study work, I saw the opportunity to come back to what is really my passion - tourism and academia. I am currently a PhD student researching tourism development, sustainability and COVID-19 in Scotland.
Research Interests Sustainability; sustainable tourism development; rural Scotland; tourism and transport; tourism infrastructure; responsible tourism; tourism marketing; tourism and Scottish history.
