Personal profile

Biography

Omar is a lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Marketing. He completed his PhD at the University of Manchester in 2020, where he worked as a teaching assistant. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Omar's research lies in the field of Consumer Behaviour and its sub-disciplinary area: Consumer Culture Theory (whereby consumption is explored from a social and cultural perspective). His research is highly interdisciplinary and uses a range of qualitative methods to explore issues related to consumption and consumer culture.

His current research interests encompass three broad themes. First, he explores how consumers' perceptions of the past shape their consumption and behaviour and engages with past-themed contexts such as nostalgic, heritage, vintage, and retro consumption.

Second, he examines issues related to consumers’ relationships with their possessions, material culture, and materiality. Third, he investigates issues related to sustainable consumption, circular forms of consumption and alternative markets/economies.
