I am currently a tenured associate professor in the Department of Tourism and Hospitality Management at Temple University. I got Ph.D. in Geography, Master of Statistics, and M.A in Economics from University of Florida.

My major research interests lie in tourism demand analysis, regional tourism growth, as well as hotel financial and real estate analysis. With a solid multi-disciplinary education background, I am able to thoroughly investigate research questions in the tourism and hospitality industry and offer unique insights and perspectives. After ten years of research experience, my academic papers have been published in top-tier tourism and hospitality journals. At the same time, I have accumulated abundant industrial experience from various consulting projects.
