Dr Etienne Bailey joined the University of Surrey in 2019 as a Research Fellow associated with the “Sustainability and Wellbeing in the Visitor Economy” research group at the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. Dr Bailey received his PhD from the University of Exeter in 2015, investigating determinants in the social acceptance of low carbon energy infrastructure in the UK. Prior to joining the University Surrey, he held a number of postdoctoral research positions on the SusGrid and Intelligent Community Energy projects, examining community perceptions of low carbon energy technologies (supply and demand-side) amongst diverse population groups including primary residents, secondary residents, visitor populations. Since joining as a research fellow at the University of Surrey, Dr Bailey has been working alongside staff at the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management in conducting and developing research on a number of key themes, including the adoption of augmented reality in museum and gallery spaces, the development of sustainable tourism indicator systems, overtourism, and facilitating the energy transition toward low carbon tourism.
