Meikel Soliman is a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lab Manager of the "Leuphana Laboratories" at the Faculty of Management & Technology. His research is primarily concerned with consumer behavior. On the one hand, Meikel Soliman deals with topics such as emotions in the consumer context. For example, he investigates how people in (consumer) situations perceive the negative emotion of embarrassment and how they deal with it (coping strategies). Another field of research deals with consumer ethics. These are behaviors that do not conform to the generally accepted norms of behavior in the consumer context. How do people evaluate unethical behavior? He is also concerned with prosocial and responsible consumer behavior. This includes the following questions: How can people be guided towards donation behavior (the prosocial consumer) and sustainable consumer behavior (e.g. nudging)? What can responsible marketing look like? Finally, he explores the question of what people associate with the term happiness and which behaviors really make people happy (vs. what people think makes them happy).
