Based on my diverse background, my research interests and projects span branding and sport marketing, in particular brand activism and sport sponsorship decisions. I am also interested in professional service and relationship marketing, specifically the changing nature of the frontline service employee role. I am currently working in the areas of frontline automation & technology integration and the resultant changes to customer experience and the customer/employee relationship. I have presented my research at academic conferences internationally including the Oxford University Corporate Reputation Symposium, Academy of Marketing Science, European Marketing Association Conference and the Frontiers in Service Conference.
