I am interested in strategic innovation of new marketing forms. In class, students are exposed to a wide range of material including case studies, scholarly texts, films, commercials, and theories of business and technology to develop a holistic and contextual understanding of marketing strategy in a world increasingly characterized by globally networked markets and transnational flows of information and innovation. Such an interdisciplinary teaching approach provides a unique opportunity for marketing students to acquire the tools and concepts necessary to navigate the ever-shifting terrain of competitive global capitalism.

In my current research I explore new marketing practices in the context of the Attention Economy. I am particularly interested in the cultural and technological innovations through which marketing (and marketers) hope to mobilize and valorize consumption in an ever-expanding range of everyday spaces cluttered with marketing messages.
