ESRC-KateJi

Congratulations are due to OSHM’s Dr Kate Ji, who has just won an ESRC Impact Accelerator Knowledge Exchange Dialogues Award.

Dr Ji will be working with Co-Investigators from the University of Oxford’s School of Geography and the Said Business School, as well as non-academic partners including Oxford City Council, to investigate possible solutions for the alleviation of tourist congestion in the historic city of Oxford. These prestigious awards are designed to facilitate stakeholder engagement in devising research questions and projects, and Dr Ji is hopeful that partners from the public and private sectors will be able to collaborate closely with researchers as they explore the potential for GIS technology to assist in tourism planning in heritage destinations.
