My research interests include any aspects of tourism in an urban context (I am co-editor of Routledge Handbook of Tourism Cities and co-editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Tourism Cities). I have also delivered major EU-funded projects related to smart initiatives in the sustainable management of heritage urban destinations, sustainable events, sustainable competitiveness of traditional markets, and I supervise PhD students doing research on transformational tourism, sustainable tourism and crisis management.

I am interested in participating in projects exploring any of the following aspects:

- Development of sustainable tourism cities
- Smart tourism cities
- Smart initiatives for managing heritage sustainably
- Behavioural change among tourists towards more sustainable alternatives
- Sustainable urban tourism
- Sustainable urban events and festivals
- Impacts of COVID-19 on tourist behaviours
- Competitiveness of traditional markets in rural and urban settings
