Associated laboratory
IGD (University of Lausanne)
After growing up in the Valais mountains, I studied political science at the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva. For 20 years, I have been a teacher-researcher in the field of tourism studies with the Alps as my preferred research site.
Field of research
I study public policies aimed at promoting tourism development or controlling its problematic ecological and social effects, as well as governance and stakeholder interactions in tourist places, in particular mountain resorts and natural parks.
