About the Programme

The successful candidate will be enrolled on the PhD in Business and Management at Cardiff Business School.
My research focuses on the social and cultural aspects of marketing. Using ethnographic approaches, I am specifically interested in the areas of experiential consumption, multisensory consumption and extremity. My research stream is centered around the role of the body in consumer research. I would be excited to work with a PhD candidate that is interested in blending discrete and overlapping bodies of work from consumer behavior, marketing, sociology and anthropology, which facilitate an understanding of embodied consumption. Specific contexts that I would be interested in exploring further with a PhD candidate include but are not limited to the consumer experience of: food, sport, health and wellness, medicine, fashion, nature and travel. Specific topics may include but are not limited to the following:
• Embodied experiential consumption (e.g., music, taste preferences, fine dining)
• Consumer resistance/ activism, (e.g., anti 5G movement)
• Healthcare experiences /consumption (e.g., organ donation, holistic medicine)
• Consumer escapes from the marketplace (e.g., extreme sport)
• Exploring the dark side of technology consumption
