My research interests lie predominantly in digital marketing and customer relationship management. The advancement in new technologies, big data, and digital analytics has created many opportunities for firms and for customers. Thanks to developments in AI, personalized, one-to-one marketing will be prevalent and it will be based on automation. I look for research opportunities here and try to solve the challenges that arise from the increased complexity of customer-firm relationships.
