Grigorios (Greg) Lamprinakos is an Assistant Professor in Marketing at the University of Birmingham. His interdisciplinary research is concerned with the relationship between strong emotions and thought process in consumers and how this affects their decision making, particularly how this affects choices for responsible and sustainable products and services.
Greg completed a BSc in Business Administration, followed by an MSc in International Marketing at Athens University of Economics and Business. Following this, he joined the University of Birmingham as a research fellow at the Center for Responsible Business and has held positions as a Lecturer in Marketing at both Oxford Brooks University and the University of Derby.
As an active researcher, Greg is driven to examine the moderating role of power within hierarchies, on cognition and decision-making, especially in the context of socially responsible and sustainable practices. He is currently exploring cognitive and meta-cognitive mechanisms that result in thought (in)validation, promoting sustainable choices and responsible behaviour both in consumers’ and organisational management contexts.
