current research or projects

Current PhD project specifically looks at climate change vulnerability and implications for adaptation strategies within the tourism sector in alpine regions. The case study being looked at is the Alpine Shire, northeast Victoria, where the tourism sector plays a major role in its economy but is also sensitive to the specific characteristics of the regional climate, which under climate change, is likely to experience increasing temperatures, aridity, variability and extremes in weather events. With already observable changes in weather patterns in recent years, it is becoming increasingly important to acknowledge that some degree of climate change impact will be inevitable and climate adaptation will be fundamental for the industry’s long-term viability in the region.
