Personal profile

Research biography

My current research is mainly focused on customer experience and customer journey (with a particular focus on online education as a context); student engagement, success and retention; utilisation of virtual reality in promoting tourism; influencer marketing as well as sustainable consumption and consumer behaviour. I specialise in mixed methodology research (combining a qualitative and quantitative approach). 

My PhD (University of Adelaide, Australia) was a mixed-method study (qualitative and quantitative) focusing on product authenticity (with a key focus on wine authenticity), product innovation and consumer behaviour. The theoretical framework developed was tested cross country (exploring the cross-cultural impact) and across different products.
