Personal Statement

“Music is the food of soul”

Music has always played an important role in my life, be it in jam sessions, music festivals and concerts, or in my every-day life. For instance, I love to play the guitar in my leisure time. I believe that future research should investigate various patterns of consumer behavior in music settings.

Therefore, I am happy to be part of MusicStats.org as a marketing researcher and a thesis supervisor. My goal is to work with students who share the marketing and music passion with me. I am looking forward to generate insights with the MusicStats.org team, which are relevant for both marketing practice and the music business.
