Research on the impact of new technologies
Prof. Dr. Emanuel de Bellis’ research focuses on empirical phenomena at the intersection of marketing, psychology, and new technologies. In particular, he examines how new technologies are perceived by consumers and what impact they have on society. His thematic focus is on autonomous products such as robotic vacuum cleaners or smart kitchen appliances, which are increasingly being used in our everyday lives. For example, in a current interdisciplinary research project, he examines to what extent meaning derived from manual labour may act as a barrier to the adoption of autonomous products. To explore this and other relationships, he uses empirical data that he either collects himself or combines with secondary data. In doing so, Prof. Dr. Emanuel de Bellis uses a variety of research methods and designs, ranging from traditional approaches (correlative and experimental studies) to newer approaches (machine learning and the modelling of unstructured data).
Prof. Dr. Emanuel de Bellis has published in both top-tier interdisciplinary and disciplinary academic journals. His articles in the "Journal of Marketing Research" and the "Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science", which are among the most prestigious journals in their respective fields, deserve special mention.

Prof. Dr. Emanuel de Bellis has extensive and long-standing teaching experience in the field of empirical research methods. He has taught a total of 15 different method courses at the Bachelor, Master, and PhD level at a total of five university institutions.
