Trained and worked in the voluntary and digital marketing domain, my research and knowledge exchange activities reside within non-profit and digital marketing. Specifically, I examine customer and brand engagement, the effectiveness of cause marketing, and how marketing communication affects people’s engagement and motivation, especially prospective supporters in taking voluntary actions. With the ever-increasing adoption and application of digital/social media tools, I explore emerging questions about customer/brand engagement in digital marketing, such as ethics and privacy issues in digital advertising. My research is driven by quantitative methods, including structural equation modelling and other multivariate techniques in psychoanalysis. Current projects include: Understanding the interplay of religiosity/religion and cultural variables in decisions within cause marketing.
