  • One (1) post in the following  topic:  “Eye tracking tourists’ visual behavior for improved mobile recommendation”

Description: Mobile eye tracking technology enables the assessment of individuals’ eye fixations and gaze  behaviour through naturalistic studies and hence provide a valuable tool for collecting data regarding tourists’ attentional patterns and possible links to decision making. Recommender systems are applications that use run on smartphones and aim to  help tourists have an improved experience, by proposing different activities to do or things to buy. These are based personalisation techniques. However, despite their popularity, recommednation systems still lack quality in recommendations. Mobile eye tracking could provide valuable insights regarding tourists’ decision making process, that can be utilised by mobile recommendation systems for improved personalised messages. The PhD canditate will engage experimental research in this area, to investigate possible links between tourists’ attentional behaviour, emotion, and decision making by utilising tourists’ eye fixation and saccadic patterns through an available mobile eye tracking technology.

Required Qualifications: Candidates should possess an undergraduate degree and an MSc/MBA from accredited universities in at least one of the following subject areas: Psychology, Hotel and Tourism Management, Computer Science, Statistics, or other studies relevant with the topic. In addition, candidates should exhibit high academic achievements, a strong background in qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, excellent command of the English language, and proficiency in computer applications and research related software. Basic knowledge of software programming and data analytics is also required.  Candidates should be able to complete their doctorate dissertation in English.  Previous relevant research output would be considered as an advantage.
