My research interests are twofold. In my Branding stream of research, I focus on changes to consumer brand preference as a result of macro-level influences such as terrorism, pandemics, or political climate. In my Psychology of Technology stream of research, I focus on how consumers interact with technology and use data.
I use quantitative, experimental, and qualitative methods in my research. I have scraped data from online sources (project: How New Product Names Influence Funding Outcomes on Crowdfunding Platforms), econometrically analysed large datasets (> 1,000,000 observations, project: How Political Polarization Affects Persuasiveness of Consumer Reviews), conducted field experiments with a difference-in-differences method (project: The Impact of Mortality Salience on Brand Preference), worked with proprietary datasets (project: How Political Elections Impact Brand Equity), conducted in-depth interviews (paper: Corporate Brand Identity Co-Creation in Business-to-Business Contexts) and designed online and lab experiments (multiple projects).
