Research interests

Through my work as a marketing lecturer in a Design School and studies in Marketing Science and Cognitive Neuroscience I have become increasingly interested in the application of neuroscience techniques such as EEG, MEG and fMRI to explore design and consumer interaction. I am particularly interested in experimental psychology research in the study of neuroaesthetics and also in the study of addiction. Neuroaesthetics from the perspective of creator and viewer perceptions processes and links between the study of innovation and creativity. Compulsive behaviour with regard to retail and buying tendencies in particular focusing on the behavioural design, habits, addictions, and decision-making in real-life situations. My research output and conference presentations to date have focused upon pedagogical issues relating to the merging of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship and I am particularly interested in the overlap between marketing and design thinking for entrepreneurship, innovation and creative outputs. In my BMAF funded study Beyond the Boundaries of the Business School I conducted research with the D-School - Stanford University, Design London - Imperial College London, Queens University and CHEAD in order to investigate marketing pedagogy as conducted outside a business faculty.
