Dr. Linda Ambrosie has a Ph.D. in Business Administration with a specialization in accounting, finance, and tourism from the University of Calgary, Canada. Her Master's degree is in International Business from the University of Paris IX Dauphine, France. She researches social and environmental sustainability, as well as tourism taxation especially tax avoidance and evasion, public sector policies, and governance in tourism destinations. In 2015, she published a book on tourism, tax evasion, and public sector governance that highlights the complex financial structures designed by international groups to remove profits from destinations where tourism companies create value. An update is being published in 2022 at the invitation of the Colegio de Jalisco as part of a book edited on tourism policy in Mexico. In this recent investigation, Dr. Ambrosie demonstrates the excessive construction on the north coast of Quintana Roo, the few taxes that are collected especially when compared to the social consequences, and the enormous environmental damage that is being generated without significant resources devoted to repairing them.
