My research specialises in social media marketing and advertising, consumer information processing and eye-tracking methodology.

I’m interested in the important factors that influence the marketing communication effectiveness, especially what type of the content interests consumers under both high or low involvement conditions.

Using the eye tracking technology, we can understand how consumers process the branded content. With this knowledge, fashion retailers can communicate with consumers more effectively.
