I am an Assistant Professor of Marketing and Consumer Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. My research interest is to find out how consumers react to new technologies such as humanoid (robots), intelligent products and how such innovations might change consumer behavior. More precisely, I am curious to find out how we can use these innovations to improve consumer behavior (health behavior, financial behavior etc.). Aside of that, I am fascinated about the role of sleep in consumer decisions, and look at what role language plays in marketing communication.
