dr. E. Constantinides (Efthymios)

Assistant Professor Digital Marketing

About Me

I am intensely interested in Marketing in digital environments and in educating the future marketers. My current research and teaching focuses on topics like: How technology shapes customer behavior and marketing practice, what is the role of social media as marketing tools and how marketers can better innovate in the new digital and multidimensional marketplace. I am interested in the impact of the AI / Cognitive Computing, Internet of Things, Big Data and Consumer Neuroscience (or Neuromarketing) on the future marketing practice and have incorporated these topics in the BA and MSc courses I teach.  
My objectives as academic are to contribute with research knowledge not only interesting for academia but also relevant to the field and to develop the University of Twente as a hub of Digital Marketing not only on national but also European level.
