Laura conducts research in the field of marketing psychology. In particular, her doctoral research investigates the antecedents and consequences of emotional responses to threat appeal stimuli. The research intends to contribute not only a close examination of emotional responses to threat appeal stimuli but also the effectiveness of such stimuli in terms of changing consumers behavioural intentions. She is particularly interested in physiological measures (for example eye tracking and GSR) and the triangulation of these with self report measures to develop understanding of consumers emotional responses. Overall, Laura’s research interests include marketing psychology, consumer behaviour, neuromarketing, e-marketing, research methodology and experimental design.
Her work has appeared in the International Journal of Psychophysiology, Qualitative Market Research, Annals of New York Academy of Science
and at the European Marketing Academy Conference
. In addition, Laura is a member of both EMAC and Beta Gamma Sigma.
