What is your current research?
My research interests refer to life cycle project management, with focus on EU programmes (i.e. Horizon 2020, Erasmus Plus) agricultural and rural areas transformation and policies; rural tourism, enhancement of local resources, territorial capital management. I have a research experience on those topics focused on South Eastern Europe as well.

What are you interested in working on in the future?
Implementation of research and networking projects on rural issues with focus on rural tourism as a tool to enhance rural areas.
What do you see as the value of the RPLC?
Networking and collaboration opportunities with European and American partners.
