My research interests: diverse economies, mobilities, sustainability, development, transnationalism, social entrepreneurship, community based tourism,activism, institutions, power, identity, culture, postcolonialism, global tourism imaginaries, tourism policy (from a sociological perspective), voluntourism

Area of special interest: Latin America socities and this region in a geopolitical perspective
