on intelligent things and human experiences 

I am a Reader in Hospitality and Digital Experience with the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at University of Surrey, where I lead the Digital Visitor Economy research group and the Digital Lab. My research interest centers around the design and mediation of experiences and how the use of information and communication technology (ICT) influences experiences. I am President of the International Federation for IT and Travel & Tourism (IFITT) since 2018, having served as Vice President from 2014-2017. I am a founding member of AIRTH, and member of ACMSIGCHI, and SIGMOBILE


Prior to joining Surrey, I was Associate Clinical Professor in School of Hospitality Business Management, Carson College of Business, Washington State University, USA. From 2008-2012, I was Assistant Professor and Associate Director of the National Laboratory for Tourism and eCommerce (NLTeC) at Temple University, USA. I received my PhD in Information Sciences (with a concentration in Human-Social Information Sciences) from Tohoku University (東北大学) in 2006 under the supervision of Professors Hisa Morisugi and Tatsuhito Kono, supported by the Japanese Government through Monbukagakusho/MEXT Scholarship Program. My Master's degree is in Industrial Engineering & Management (with a concentration in Engineering Economics) from Bandung Institute of Technology (Institut Teknologi Bandung).
