Torgeir has published several books and articles; mainly related to consumer socialisation and social learning processes.
His work on how family members learn consumer skills from each other has won two Emerald outstanding paper awards. Rooted in social learning theory, Torgeir’s research investigates social and relational aspects of consumption choices and behaviour.
He has consulted non-for-profit community health organisations in relation to peer-learning between young adults as well as consumer learning within families. In addition, he has consulted some of Victoria’s Craft Breweries as well as the Australian Craft Beer Industry Association (CBIA) about humanisation and social connectedness of their brands.
When Torgeir is not exploring social relationships, he may be found running around the Yarra, climbing a mountain somewhere, or brewing beer in his backyard.
