His research utilizes a mixture of quantitative methods/analysis (analysis of variance, regression, causal modeling), qualitative methods (focus groups, in-depth interviews, content analysis), and psychophysiological technology (eye-tracking) to examine digital marketing and advertising issues. Some past and current projects investigate best practices to implement sponsored ads, the use of “influencers” or opinion leaders in social media marketing, and incorporating eye tracking technology to design and evaluate web based advertisements.
