Fatemeh serves Customer Insights Professionals, with a focus on the shifting consumer data ecosystem, including how privacy issues impact marketing and how customer preference centers improve engagement. Her seminal research on Personal Identity Management (PIDM) describes how consumers will soon manage the sharing of their personal data with each other and with businesses. Her report, "Adaptive Intelligence," further defines a framework for privacy-compliant data sharing between organizations to gain insight, reduce risk, and increase profitability.
Previously, Fatemeh focused on CI Services providers, including agencies, analytics providers, MSPs, and consultancies. She continues to stay abreast of those topics, and the vendors within that rapidly-changing landscape.
Fatemeh's research has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, AllThingsD, CNBC, and AdAge. She has contributed to the Harvard Business Review and Financial Times, provided commentary on NPR and the BBC, and been credited in the World Economic Forum's "Rethinking Personal Data" report. She is a frequent speaker at industry and client events, including SxSW, DataWeek, and PrivacyIdentityInnovation.
