RESEARCH AREAS / INTERESTS
  • Research areas include complaint handling and service failure, service experience, customer satisfaction, and behavior. Service failures are mostly caused by the employee. Consequently, my research considers the nexus of customer and employee in the services industry like customer-employee relations, customer forgiveness, customer satisfaction and behavior, and reasons of service failure (justice perceptions, knowledge hiding, organizational dehumanization).

  • COVID-19 and “New Normal” situations propelled customers to interact with digital plate-forms. Hence, my research also considers mobile applications adoption, word of mouth, digital plate-farm sharing, service robots, and innovation adoption, corporate digital responsibility, social media and text mining, and context analysis.
