With her thesis “Urban tourism: Developing a model framework to explore spatio-temporal patterns of pedestrian tourist in Amsterdam”, GIMA graduate Julia Ubeda won the Utrecht University Marc de Smidt thesis prize 2019. This prize is awarded to the best Geography-related thesis written at Utrecht University.
According to the jure report, “the jury was impressed by the use of advanced methods underpinned by sound theoretical argumentation, and especially its translation into an applicable and convincing simulation of tourist behaviour in Amsterdam. Even though we are are far away from solving the issue of overtourism, this thesis brought us a step closer to understanding how it works”
