Research area

Korey is a PhD candidate in the School of Business and Law. His research topic is on understanding sustainable behaviour of national park visitors. Korey's primary research interests are entrepreneurship and sustainability with a particular focus and passion for understanding the socio-psychological concept of 'behaviour' in the travel and tourism context. His current research interest relates to people's sustainable behaviour (pro-environmental behaviour) in a national park context. Although his background is in (tourism) marketing, he approaches consumers/tourists’ behaviour from a multi-disciplinary perspective.


Korey is an international student from Iran with nearly 15 years in higher education. He has completed a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from the University of Shiraz (Iran).

After graduation, he has worked and taught in tourism marketing in Iran and authored two textbooks regarding hospitality and tour guiding. Owing to his passion for research and getting familiar with different cultures, Korey has moved to Australia to do a PhD and follow his passions.
