About Dr. Paul Marsden

I’m Dr Paul Marsden, a consumer psychologist working for WPP digital agency Syzygy.

My job is simple. I help businesses understand consumers.

I believe that the biggest digital disruption is the one happening in our heads, as technology transforms our identity, experiences and relationships. I help businesses understand how this digital disruption influences consumer needs, motivations and behaviour.

I lecture on consumer psychology at the business school of the London College of Fashion (University of the Arts London), where I am also researching “enclothed cognition” – the psychological impact of fashion on cognitive ability.

I am a chartered psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society and my PhD focused on online psychological research techniques. I co-founded Brainjuicer PLC (now System1 Group), a research company that combines machine learning with word association techniques to understand consumers. A selection of my research can be found here, and my resume can be found here on LinkedIn.
