Dr Oswald Mhlanga is a holder of a Doctoral Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management from CPUT. His research focus is in restaurant and hotel operations, the digital economy and the aviation industry. He is passionate about the digital economy in hospitality. This is illustrated by his research-informed teaching which embeds home sharing (Airbnb) into the hospitality curricula. These are all geared towards adding a pan-African dimension to hospitality epistemologies, as well as to the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) agenda in Africa.

Dr Oswald Mhlanga has managed to build bridges among continental universities where hospitality management is promoted as an academic discipline. He has over the past 5 years published over 50 scientific articles in local and international journals. As of 10 November 2020, Dr Mhlanga has 277 Google Scholar citations, an h-index of 10 and an i10-index of 12. He is also a board member of several local and international journals in the Hospitality and Tourism domain. Responding to the mushrooming euphoria of COVID-19 hospitality related research, Dr Mhlanga is currently using Paradox research, as a meta-theory and/or methodology, to support the hospitality industry with COVID-19 informative research. Incorporating paradox research into COVID-19 research may also be inevitable, as the COVID-19 circumstances, impacts and debates have uncovered and intensified existing paradoxes, but also generated new ones.
