About Stephani Robson

Stephani Robson, senior lecturer, worked for several years in restaurants and retail food operations in her native Canada before deciding to pursue a college degree in the field. She graduated from the School of Hotel Administration in 1988, and began her career as a foodservice designer with Cini-Little International and subsequently with Marrack Watts in Toronto, Ontario. As a professional foodservice designer, she has designed kitchen facilities for hotels, restaurants, airports, hospitals, universities and catering halls.

Her academic interests center on how the design of environments affect consumer intentions, satisfaction and behavior. She is a specialist in the psychology of restaurants and has presented and published her research in a wide range of industry and academic forums around the world.
