Short Biography:

Dr Ben Iaquinto is a tourism geographer with research interests in the areas of mobilities, sustainable tourism, backpackers and tourism policy. He uses mixed methods and theories of social practice to understand the fluctuating relations between tourist mobilities and practices of sustainability. He is particularly interested in how a low carbon tourism industry can be developed in the context of climate change and the erratic planetary transformations associated with the onset of the Anthropocene. Forthcoming research projects examine how the Chinese tourism industry could reduce its carbon footprint and better adapt to a changing climate. He is a former academy member of the Sustainable Society Institute at the University of Melbourne and is currently on the steering committee of AusMob, the Australian Mobilities Research Network. Prior to joining the University of Hong Kong he was a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Public Policy, City University of Hong Kong.
