About Rakshith

A tourism researcher, tourism marketing and sustainable development professional with an in-depth understanding of the global tourism industry, sustainable tourism development, tourism marketing and planning. My passion for traveling and curiosity to learn about different cultures made me choose travel & tourism as my industry.

I have spent time across geographies, and lived in Australia, India and United States of America. My research work includes projects dealing with sustainable tourism management and visitor analysis in the Great Ocean Road (Victoria) region, project proposal for disaster risk reduction and crisis management in Ecuador, Gen Y Australians' perception of South America, analysis of the travel and tourism industry in Vietnam, visitor behaviour analysis at National Sports Museum, as well as a number of case study research projects as part of my Postgraduate degree.

Personal travel experience:
