Research, supervision and teaching areas:
- Transitioning to sustainable practice: how do we enable consumers, business buyers, and organizations to transition to more sustainable behaviours. Particularly interests relate to large climate change contributors including agriculture and diet (decreases in meat consumption), energy use (adoption of new innovations), building materials, and transport (cycling and public transport).
- Design driven innovation: The nexus between design thinking and marketing practice, including the brand benefits of design thinking, the relationship between marketers and designers in new product development, design capabilities, and design driven innovation remains under researched. Design innovation and sustainability and the role of design thinking and marketing education are also of interest.
- The revitalization of manufacturing and making: understanding modern manufacturing practice as well as more recent developments such as 3D printing / additive manufacturing, the maker movement, and the revitalization of craft.
- Brand management: brand authenticity, the managerial practices behind long term brand success and other topical areas including brand crisis management, branding and entrepreneurship, branding and share-market behaviour, and brand protection.
- Consumer culture: brand culture, national identity, subcultures of consumption, and consumer practices. Michael has particular interests in macromarketing related topics (social practice and behaviour change), and practices related to authenticity (such as authentic wine), and the revival of analogue technologies such as camera film, vinyl records, and electronic music.
