Exploring the Tenderness of Consumer Behavior.

Email  CV

Consumers make judgments and decisions with a heart. I study what pulls their heartstrings, such as the motivation to preserve memorable experience, the acts of charitable deeds, and the conflict between the heart and the mind.

I use lab and field experiments to address my research questions, which include:

  • How to encourage owners to join the Sharing Economy?
  • How to sell used cars?
  • How to thin out, let go, and move on?
  • How to make people donate?
