I am primarily interested in human and consumer behavior in the context of online environments, social media, innovation, and branding. My research can be divided into two broad areas: First, I investigate how and why people use social and online media, applied to different contexts and platforms. One core topic is the emerging group of social media influencers, including bloggers and micro-influencers, with the aim to understand their self-branding efforts, and, as such, their role in communicating and branding products, services, and experiences to follower audiences online. Second, I am interested in how consumers respond to, process information of, and learn about novel marketing stimuli, such as analogies for novel products, novel brand names, or other marketing information. Methodologically, I am pragmatic and use both quantitative (incl. survey and experimental designs) and qualitative methods, often in triangulation.
From 2012-2015, I held an individual Marie Curie post-doc fellowship, funded by the EU 7th Framework Program. The project investigated experimentally how to compose good brand names for novel products based on information-processing theories. I received my Ph.D. from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Before entering academia, I worked in PR, sales, and marketing in the automotive and software industry.
