Senior Lecturer in Marketing, City, University of London

I am Senior Lecturer in Marketing at Cass Business School, University of London, UK. I study storytelling, social media, and consumer behaviour. My research is published in premier and leading academic journals, including the Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Management Information Systems, International Journal of Research in Marketing, European Journal of Marketing, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Interactive Marketing, Journal of Marketing Management, et cetera. My work has been covered by the BBC, Newsweek, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, the Independent, Financial Times, the Sydney Morning Herald, and national TV and radio stations in Austria, Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands, among other news outlets.

Previously, I have been a consultant of the European Commission, Assistant Professor at ESCP Europe Business School, and a visiting scholar at the Universities of Sydney and New South Wales in Australia. I hold a doctorate in marketing (PhD) from Maastricht University, the Netherlands. Though I have won awards for my academic research, teaching, and media exposure, I count winning my high school's story recital competition in 1995 as my most impressive accomplishment.
