Victoria Mellon


Summary

My time at Sheffield Hallam is quite extensive so far. I completed my degree and masters here and as well as teaching, I am studying for a PhD which focuses on sustainable tourism and partnership working in English national parks. This has led me to publish a paper in the Journal of Sustainable Tourism about a tourism partnership in the Peak District and expand my research to other national parks

Working in the tourism industry for large tour operators and hotels in the UK and USA has fuelled my enthusiasm for researching and teaching tourism, and I enjoy working on subjects such as sustainable tourism, tourist behaviour and operations and project management.

I have also previously worked as an events organiser and personal research assistant for a research project at another university, both of which have given me a great experience in the hospitality sector and in academia.

I really enjoy teaching and researching tourism and each year look forward to meeting new students!
