Hei! I’m an Assistant Professor at BI Norwegian Business School (Norway). In this website, I present some information about my interests, my academic and professional experience, and some of my work. Below, you’ll see my short bio.
I obtained my D.Phil. in Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, under the supervision of Prof. Charles Spence (Crossmodal Research Laboratory). Following that, I worked first as a Research Fellow at the SCHI Lab, Sussex University (UK), and then as a Research Fellow at the Imagineering Institute (Malaysia). Currently, in addition to my position at BI Norwegian Business School, I’m also a research affiliate at the Crossmodal Research Laboratory.
My research focuses on crossmodal perception, in particular on crossmodal correspondences in the context of sensory marketing, multisensory human-computer interaction, and multisensory design (see Research, for more details). This research has been presented in conferences such as Pangborn, SXSW, CHI, ACE, and ESOMAR. It has also been published in journals such as Perception, Food Quality and Preference, PeerJ, and Flavour, and has been covered by several media news (i.e., BBC, ScienceShot, Daily Mail, and NPR).
I’m one of the co-founders of Neurosketch (Colombia, consulting firm) and Flying Fish Research (UK, Oxford’s start-up). I have worked with a number of companies from all around the world such as Takasago, Seguros Bolívar, Colombina, Sea Tech, Givaudan, Dow Chemical, Pfizer, and Terpel. This work has focused on a variety of topics including multisensory experience design, HCI, food and drink, packaging, branding, consumer research, advertising, marketing, research, and innovation.
