I am an associate professor of marketing at the University of Arizona with affiliations in cognitive science and veterinary medicine. I am the founding director of the Arizona Think Tank for Behavioral Decision Making, and also a visiting professor of marketing at EGADE Business School.
My research broadly deals with the ways consumers strive for desirable things and attractive people, how they feel about these things and people, and whether their actions will lead to outcomes such as product purchases or new relationships.
Important to me is to study consumers through the lens of different methods, including asking them about their opinions, attitudes, and feelings, measuring their neurophysiological responses, and observing their behavior. I also think better understanding consumers’ minds and behaviors will help firms to better differentiate their products and to stay competitive.
