Research areas

My research focuses on developing a holistic view on understanding consumer motivations towards purchasing local food. This study sought to address a gap in knowledge on the influences on consumer purchase intention for local food and raised questions as to what local food might mean for consumers, beyond the binary influences of local support and personal/altruistic and ethical factors in the local food purchasing decision. Currently, researching on personal branding and social media marketing concept.
