Visit from Florida State University2017-05-15
Corrinne Kelley, Ph. D Student at Florida State University, USA, is currently visiting CTF for three weeks to work on a joint project with our researchers Anders Gustafsson and Poja Shams.
– I am visiting CTF to help run an experiment for a project I have been working on with Anders Gustafsson, Poja Shams and my two advisors Maura L. Scott and Martin Mende. We will be using a scent machine as well as eye tracking technology. It is still fairly developmental, but essentially this project looks at how different scents can impact vice/virtuous purchases in the retail space. Moreover, we thought it would be great for me to visit so that I could help prepare the experiment as well as learn how the scent and eye tracking technology operates. It is our hope I can also learn from Poja how to analyze the eye tracking data seeing as he is such an expert in the area, says Corinne Kelley.
