Marta’s research looks into digital sustainability, technology and retail marketing.
Marta is interested in the interplay between digital (i.e social media, mobile, website) and physical channels and how innovative technologies contribute to creating a unique and integrated experience among these touchpoints. Also, technology can be used to promote sustainable behaviours and to increase consumer’ knowledge and awareness about sustainability on digital channels. In terms of sustainability, it is important to address consumer’s knowledge and motivations to engage in sustainable consumption but also it is relevant to know how innovative technologies can be used as part of the fashion shopping experience to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry.Marta Blazquez Cano / Senior Lecturer in Fashion Marketing
