Current Research Activities
My most recent work covers the wider topic of customer perceived value perceptions and their interface with customer participation. Together with a number of colleagues and PhD students, we examine ways to measure customer perceived value, explore its dynamic nature in contexts that require a high element of customer participation. We are also interested in the link between customer education and customer participation.

My work with members of the Contemporary Marketing Practice (CMP) group explored firm's different approaches to marketing, ranging from a purely transaction type approach to a strong Relational approach. We examined drivers of these various marketing approaches and conditions under which they are successful. Related to this is also my work on Supplier Relationships.

Over the years my research interests have covered a number of areas. I have a long-term interest in different research methodologies and international marketing activities.
