Consumer Behavior, Stereotypes, & Face Perception 

In my main line of research, I study stereotypes, and in particular facial stereotypes (i.e., the mental representations of faces associated with given social attributes) in the market- and workplace. I also study how people make inferences and decisions based on others' facial appearance.

Consumer Behavior in a Changing World

I am broadly interested in how consumers navigate today's changing world, for instance how they behave when exposed to technology (e.g., the mere presence of smartphones), how they respond to distrust towards institutions, or how they manage their time.
