Project and research interest

Currently, I’m working on a project based in Alagadi beach in Cyprus. I’m studying interpretivism in marine watching tours and the transformative experiences of both visitors and volunteers. My research interest focuses on how an interpretive experience such as marine watching tours may change our attitude and behaviour towards conservation.
