MY LATEST RESEARCH
The first strand of my latest research is centred on the development of large scale urban and heritage tourism projects in China's Greater Bay Area.
I am also interested in extending my work on tourism in heritage places into issues concerning resident aspirations, entrepreneurship and livelihoods in China's historic towns.
