FEAR OF COVID-19 AND WILLINGNESS TO FLY OF MILLENNIALS
The travel industry has been severely impacted by COVID-19. Going forward, both international and domestic travel restriction will ease with rising levels of vaccination, as we all learn to “live with the virus”. How will it all pan out?
Our speaker, Dr Jianhong Cecilia Xia, is an academic expert on travel and tourism. She is an associate Professor and senior lecturer in the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Curtin University. Her area of expertise lies in Geospatial Sciences and human mobility studies. Dr Xia has published over 100 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and book chapters, and she has also been awarded over a million dollars in research grants from government agencies, industries and the Australian Research Council since 2005.
Dr Xia will discuss her research findings on impact of COVID-19 to travel.
