I am currently working as a lecturer in Digital Marketing within the School of Business.

Before joining LSBU, I have gained six years of experience in the Advertising and Communications Industry. As a researcher-practitioner, I am an active contributor in many collaborative schemes between Universities and industries, both inside and outside the UK.

My research interest centers on the roles of the Arts in marketing, social marketing and responsible marketing. This includes promoting artistic citizenship and the influences of the arts on individual and societal developments. Additionally, I am keen to employ various creative methods of research dissemination.

My recent research looks at the interplay between technology and the arts and how this interplay influenced the changes in consumption pattern. My future research aims to widen the impact of arts engagement in facilitating the development of urban life, building reconciliation in communities, and producing engaged citizens.

I have published book chapters, journal article, and conference proceedings. Besides, I have produced several pieces of arts to visualise my research. My artworks have been exhibited at national and international research events and conferences, such as Consumer Culture Theory Consortium, The Arts and Science festival, and The Images of Research Exhibition.
