Research interests

  • Extrinsic attribute influence on inferred consumption characteristics
  • Visually salience and product choice
  • Space elasticity and shelf management in Premium Bottled Ale choice
  • Eye tracking for visual marketing
  • Attention versus memory based influences in brand choice

Tim is especially interested in how drinkers choose beer. Britain currently has 1000 micro-brewers who, relative to the national and global brands, have very low levels of brand awareness. This means the beer pump clip is an important means of selling the product. Tim's research aims to understand the relationship between visual attention and decision making at point-of-purchase.
